Spring is in the air, or at least the giant pile of snow in my driveway is almost melted away. At any rate, NYTSL just had our spring Executive Board Meeting the other day and programs and events are always part of what we discuss at these things.
The Spring Receptions are a big deal to us, and to the local library community. Not as big a deal as the Spring and Fall Programs, of course, but important nonetheless. They provide opportunities for library school students who are interested in technical services careers to meet and schmooze with NYTSL members, friends, and guests. And of course long-time librarians attend as well; it keeps our community informed of what’s happening in other library organizations (read: METRO, ACRL, ALA, MLA-NY, etc.)
And there’s food and booze at these things. That has to interest someone out there besides me.
So please save the date for the Spring 2014 New York Technical Services Librarians Annual Reception for Librarians, Information Professionals and Library School Students.
Friday, April 25, 2014
4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Columbia University Libraries

This is an opportunity for librarians, archivists, and information professionals from the metropolitan area to meet informally. It is also a chance for library school students to learn about the various professional organizations in the metropolitan area and to meet future colleagues and employers.
Wine & Cheese will be served.
You are welcome to bring announcements of professional opportunities to the reception.
More details will follow soon.
