Librarians Going GaGa

Maybe you all have seen this before, but maybe not.

Some UW MLIS students and iSchool faculty doing a parody of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face”.

Library Student Journal

I’m not sure why I didn’t know about Library Student Journal before last week -  produced by and for library students and practitioners!  At this point it is only published once a year but since it is an open access journal all articles (since 2006) are available on the website. Also, it looks like a recruitment is currently under way for the editorial staff. Any interested contributors to the journal can check out the various position descriptions on the LSJ Editor’s Blog.

Let’s meet up again

The FLIP meeting planning has fallen by the wayside since about March (guilty as charged!) but many folks seem to be interested in starting up again.  How about sometime in July?  For now, pencil in Noon on Friday, July 16 at the Consortium Library. Feel free to comment if you want to suggest a different time/date/place.  Or propose ideas for discussion topics please!
