Monday Update

March 16, 2015

Good morning!

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I've been enjoying the warmer temperatures, even if it means lots of muddy towels from wiping dog paws.


I've sent out invitations to the ACRL Virtual Conference sessions I plan to watch. If the BI room is available during those times, I'll plan to be in there. If not, I'll be in my office. Please consider joining me for one, some, or all.


If you haven't taken the survey regarding my MLA Academic Libraries schedule, please do so by Wednesday. I'll be closing the survey then. I appreciate everyone who has participated. Looks like I'll have an interesting conference.


Due to lack of information, there will not be a monthly staff update. If you have anything to share, I can always include it in the next Monday Update.


We will have a staff meeting this Friday afternoon. If you have any agenda items, please get them to me by Thursday morning. I plan to send the agenda out Thursday afternoon.


Have a good week all!
