Happy Holiday

With the arrival of the winter holiday season and the new year about to begin, I would like to extend my best wishes and thanks to each and every one of you for your hard work, perseverance, and friendship. 

I am proud of what we have accomplished this year in IAMSLIC and I am confident that we are well positioned, whatever challenges and change 2012 may bring, to continue this success.

Merry Christmas! Happy holidays, and my best wishes for a Happy New Year!

Some potential topics:

  • Patron-driven acquisitions
  • Electronic books

  • Digitization projects & copyright
  • Beyond the institutional repository – innovative uses or creation of tools. What comes next?
  • Citation management tools
  • Cited searching (the new Google Scholar Citations tool)
  • Data services/Data librarianship
