ALA Prepares for Busy Semester

By Janee Dabney

UB-ALA kicked off the spring semester with a sweet event. On February 11th our student group held a Bake Sale in the Baldy Common area. Sara Sinden, an LIS student, graciously delved out the delicious treats prepared by UB-ALA members as well as LIS students.

The popular Get Shelved t-shirts are still available for $10 each, and a new design contest is now underway. UB-ALA has decided to sell tote bags and would like a creative new design to adorn them. Design submissions can be e-mailed to ubstudentala@gmail.com. The contest will be publicized through out the next few weeks.

UB-ALA will once again host a Wine and Cheese Soiree on Friday, February 27th. Space is limited so visit our blog for more details and information. The event promotes professional development as topics in librarianship are discussed. This semester our group would also like to hold another Professional Development event on campus for LIS students. Advocacy, networking, and re-location have been discussed as topics for the event. You can send your suggestions to us at ubstudentala@gmail.com or post to our blog at http://www.ubstudentala.wordpress.com.

UB-ALA has created a team for Relay for Life, March 21-22 at the Alumni Arena. The event will be from 4pm-6am. Our team is the Librarians for Life and we are looking for team captains. The team can be no larger than 15 people and the cost to participate is $10, so come join us for some relay fun, future librarian style.
While the website is redesigned, the UB-ALA blog will now serve as the web site for our student group. Other events and activities for this semester can be found on the blog. Feel free to contact us with your questions or concerns.

ALA Revives “Get Shelved” Shirts

by Sarah Kelly

As our semester draws to an end, we’d like to announce that UB ALA is also the local NYLA student chapter. The new officers will determine how this will impact the organization. Speaking of new officers, ALA now has a new board. Jessica Stokes will serve as President; Anna Gossin as Vice President; Janee Dabney as Secretary; and Elaine Dean as Treasurer. We wish them the best of luck in taking over the club, and we are eager to see what they plan to do.

ALA would also like to announce that we have a new shipment of ‘Get Shelved’ tee shirts. They are on sale for $10 and you can email us at ubstudentala@gmail.com to get yours. We would also like to thank everybody who attended our professional development programs. We hope you enjoyed them!

The UB ALA website is still listed as under construction, but when the grand unveiling occurs, it will knock your socks off.

Please remember that our holiday book drive is still going on, so as you clean off your bookshelves, please toss those books in the donation boxes in the computer lab and lounge. Good luck on your final projects and tests. Have a good break and we look forward to seeing you again in the spring!
