Wired West: Volume 14, no. 1


By Allan Cho

Welcome to Volume 14, No. 1 of Wired West. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this issue. For this issue, the theme is very much about experiences. In particular, the experiences of SLA WCC's members who have either attended special events like celebrating SLA WCC's 25th anniversary, or attending an interesting conference session, or even collecting responses for an upcoming conference session at BCLA. It's an exciting issue of ideas and experiences. I hope you enjoy the read.
