Please join us for our guest speaker Dale Prince for his presentation on Public Displays: Web 2.0 and the Information Commons.

Following the meeting we will be having our popular dinner at Sascha's, one of Baltimore's finest restaurants.

SLA Units: Gay & Lesbian Issues Caucus

Minutes: GLIC now GLBTIC - SLA 2006 and beyond

SLA 2006 brought a great turnout of librarians to our annual meeting and we were quite fortunate to have Dale Prince speak to us on "Public Displays: Web 2.0 and the Information Commons.". He was witty and engaging and spoke to a packed room of about 40 people. If you haven't already checked out his blog, The anti-adventures of a gay mail librarian it's at: Once again, thanks to Dale and for accepting our golden tiara as a memento.

Cy and Julie volunteered to continue to be Co-conveners for the 2006-2007 year. Concern had been expressed about the difficulties navigating the SLA hierarchy for new conveners, and to that end we solicited interest in being "mentored" into the role. During the meeting we also came to the decision to formally change the name from the Gay and Lesbian Issues Caucus to the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Issues Caucus, to be more reflective or our members.

During the meeting interest was voiced in honoring our history of 10+ years. We hope to write an article for Information Outlook commemorating this. We are also planning to have a speaker for next year and are in the process of getting co-sponsorship from a Division.
