UB SLA has officially changed its name to SLAB (Special Libraries Association at Buffalo). This month SLAB held elections for next semester’s president and vice president. Nick Brodnicki will be the new president and Patricia Powers will be the new vice president.
Current SLAB President Ellie Jones spoke with Dr. Judith Robinson and other faculty regarding what courses students concentrating in special libraries should take. The following courses were recommended: Digital Information Retrieval; Collection Development; and Archives. Dr. Robinson also suggested getting involved in a corporate library practicum or special project.
If you still have not joined SLA, it is not too late. Students can join for a special $35 membership fee. Applications are available online at http://www.sla.org
SLAB would like to join its fellow student organizations in wishing all fall graduates good luck in their future careers. And to everyone else (including graduates!), have a happy, healthy and safe winter break.
