Title: LACUNY Liaison Update
Post by: KimmySzeto on March 08, 2012, 02:26:42 PM
LACUNY held their first executive council meeting of the year on February 10. Some highlights:

-   A proposal is on the table for a round table for adjuncts. I don’t think there is a similar body in SUNYLA that is dedicated to adjunct affairs.

-   The LACUNY Institute, LACUNY’s annual symposium, will take place on Friday, June 1, from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm at CUNY Graduate Center. Keynote speakers include Jeffrey Hoover, architect, and Jessamyn West, library technology writer. Registration is open: http://lacuny.wordpress.com/2011/12/06/2012-lacuny-institute/

-   LACUNY is holding a contest for a new logo. The competition is modeled after a similar contest held by ACRL/NY last year. I worked with another CUNY librarian on writing the specs and competition guidelines, so now I am happy to answer any question about logo design and about holding online design competitions. The contest closes next week, and I will tell you all about the judging process in the next update. You can see the contest here: http://www.logosauce.com/competitions/1330
