I’m late, I’m late for a very important date
No time to say “Hello”, “Goodbye”
I’m late, I’m late, I’m late, I’m late.*
If you read this issue, you too might start to feel like the rabbit in Alice In Wonderland, as there are several events, courses, and symposia taking place over the next few months. I hope you will be able to take advantage of the many opportunities to update your skills, get acquainted with your fellow chapter members, and learn more about topics relevant to your work. Besides our Annual Meeting, there are PubMed courses, a scholarly communication symposium, and a conference on changes in health sciences libraries. There are also deadlines—for registrations, for nominations-related documents, for abstracts. Don’t just check out the calendar—check out the articles as well. And don’t be late
You might notice something different about this issue: namely, that there is no PDF version. We are experimenting with alternate methods of delivering the Chronicle, as there were no takers for the position of formatter when I asked earlier this year. However, the content is just as good as ever. This issue offers many wonderful items. Among them: you will get to meet a new chapter member, get an update from the Middle Atlantic Region about their activities, and learn about identity authentication methods. Along with the good also comes the sad, however. A library near and dear to my heart has closed. In keeping with the mission of this newsletter, to be a chronicle of its members’ and member libraries’ activities, I present later in this issue a timeline of the history of the research library at the Abramson Center for Jewish Life. While it was lovely talking to the previous librarians and staff in preparation for this article, it was also bittersweet to realize that this was the end of an era.
