Instead of a spring meeting, we held a job shadowing event. We had 4 students or new librarians sign up to shadow working librarians, and two pairs of shadowers and shadowees followed through and met for a job shadowing experience.
We sponsored three sessions at annual conference:
Speed Networking! Get Connected
Library Science Student/New Professionals Poster Session
1 Year Out: 4 Recent Graduates Talk About Life After Library School, by Karin Dalziel, Emily Nimsakont, Marcia Dority Baker, and Kathryn Kelley
We awarded the NLA sponsorship for an ALA Emerging Leader to Elizabeth Lighthipe of Bellevue University.
