I was talking to one of my colleagues yesterday, the electronic resources librarian in the public services department of my Library. She’s a young librarian (out of school for more than three years, though), but very knowledgeable and experienced. She’s very active in ARLIS, especially the local New York chapter.
Two things came up.
One, she said that this project is definitely the type of thing that warrents some grant money, or other funding. So, I’m feeling like Sara’s application on the group’s behalf has a good chance.
Two, I casually asked her if she would want to be the Student Discussion Group’s liaison, and she casually said yes. Obviously the group would have to make a more formal application, and she would need time to think about the committment and make a more formal acceptance. So what do you guy’s think?
In the meantime, I am forwarding her the information about the discussion group and this blog. She’s going to submit a notice about the discussion group to the ARLIS/NY Web site. We also might want to submit some information to ALA, especially once the Web site/blog is more established and up and running.
