GLIC Takes Philly by Storm!!
This year's SLA annual conference was held in the "City of Brotherly Love"!  Can you  think of a better place for GLIC members to meet, greet, and bask in the profession?  Aside from a trip to the conveniently scheduled Philadelphia Pride Parade & Festival and a wonderful evening out at a local restaurant, GLIC also held its annual business meeting.  If you missed out on the activities or just need a refresher on what we discussed, Go to GLICNews.   Next year it's San Antonio or Bust!   Hmmmmm.....

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!
Tired of your job?  Maybe it's time you found a new one!   Your Webmaster has been scouring the Internet looking for library and information jobs posted as being "gay friendly" or listed on glbt mailing lists.  The list is growing!  If you are looking for a job or know of one opening,  Go to GLICNews.

Keeping the News A'Coming!
Last month we added the scrolling news ticker powered by the folks at Gaywire! This month, look for a button at the top of our news page that will bring you the latest in glbt news headlines from GFN.com.  Your Webmaster has entered into a special agreement with GFN to give GLIC members instant access to GFN's daily headlines direct from our own Web pages.  Go to GLICNews.

Behold the Site of the Month!
The "Site of the Month" feature is designed to highlight the best in glbt content providers on the web.  A new site will be feature each month and all previous sites will be added to GLIC's list of links.  This month we feature The Gay Financial Network (GFN.com).  The site offers a plethora of valuable content on financial and personal planning for gay and lesbian couples - as well as major business news from around the world.  Free membership provides even greater access to this treasure of a site!  See it today at GLICLinks.

Mentoring Information Available Soon!
We have begun uploading information on GLIC's new mentoring program.  Information on how the program will work as well as rules for mentors and advisees will be available on our site.  We are also in the process of creating a form that will allow interested mentors and advisees to sign up online!  Keep an eye on GLICNews.

We Need You!
The GLIC Web site is YOUR site! What would you like to see on it? For this site to be successful we need to hear from our members. Please send announcements, useful links, job postings, articles of interest, and even member news. Of course, your suggestions and complaints are always welcome! Help us to improve our home on the Web! Let's make this the premier site for gay and lesbian information professionals! Send all submissions to John DiGilio at jdigilio@kl.com
