The Green Flash is the moment of green light that flashes just as the sun sets or rises over open water. The Green Flash in IAMSLIC are those brilliant moments of clarity or insight that occur. They are brief discussions about new discoveries or moments of brilliance in our libraries. Have you got a program to brag about that was particularly successful? Have a new resource that others might find useful? Found a particularly funny cartoon we can all enjoy? Contact Kristen at if you would like share news, reviews and other flashes of insight with colleagues.
