LIS GSA Chock Full O’ Events!

By Lina Terjesen

LIS GSA began the semester with a Happy Hour at Jack’s Place on February 12th. This semester, the group has many more events planned for your enjoyment. Among them is ice skating at the Rotary Rink in downtown Buffalo on February 28, a lounge event as soon as the student lounge is open, a Rochester Happy Hour (or 2), bowling night, and a year-end celebration. Stay tuned to the listserv and the Events Calendar for specific times and dates of these events.
LIS GSA held an open forum for students to share their thoughts about the department, faculty, accreditation and anything else LIS-related that may be on your mind. Karen Reczek, a SILS alum, moderated and will aid LIS GSA in creating a document to repsent to the faculty. The document and faculty response will be posted to the list serv.
As a gentle reminder, LIS GSA has a policy in place that states that conference funding requests are submitted by the 15th of the month prior to the conference.

All are invited to the next open LIS GSA meeting on Thursday, March 5th at 5:15pm. Location is TBA.

SLAWNY Plans Tour of Hull House, Encourages Involvement

By Kelly Kroese

<p? SLAWNY’s next gathering will be Thursday, November 6, 2008. It will be a walking tour, starting at 4:30pm at The Hull House, 5976 Genesee Street, Lancaster 14086. Built by Revolutionary War veteran Warren Hull, the c.1810 Hull House is the oldest surviving stone dwelling in Erie County and was used as a place of refuge for citizens of Buffalo fleeing the village as it was being burned by the British in Dec. 1813. Come tour this great historical landmark. http://www.landmark-niagara.org/hull/int/index.html.

SLAWNY members will also be assisting UB ALA in their book drive for charity. Local SLMS will be donating from their personal stashes and assisting us in the collection of the books through their ILL. UB ALA is very grateful for their support and assistance

SLAWNY would like more student involvement in their networks, committees and events. They still need a lot of help with the planning of their spring professional conference, “Spring Sharing,” which will be held in March. All students should also plan on attending the event, as there are many interesting and informative sessions to experience.

There are currently only 10 Student members of SLAWNY, which is completely ludicrous. All of us in the Buffalo area should have memberships in order to build our networks and have access to “insider information.” There is rolling acceptance of membership fees so you can join at any time. The sooner the better!
