August Reference Notes

The August issue of Reference Notes is now available.

In this issue we extend heartfelt congratulations to three great Minnesota library leaders on their retirements and to one excellent media specialist in particular on her work with History Day. We also announce some of the all-new webinars we have scheduled for the fall. Don't miss these - we've got some great ones this year. We talk about our work with a group of learners in a program called OLLI. And we share some statistics on the ELM instruction we did in FY11. Hazard a guess as to how many people attended ELM instructional sessions last year and then see how close you came on the last page of the newsletter.
