Re: LACUNY News
 
Kimmy Szeto (Baruch College) and Frans Albarillo (Brooklyn College) are LACUNY’s co-liaisons to SUNYLA. We look forward to exchanging news and discussions between the two organizations.
 
The library school at Queens College (GSLIS) remains accredited after an appeal to the ALA Executive Board. Looking ahead, the ALA Committee on Accreditation will conduct a review in October 2014, with a new accreditation decision to be announced in January 2015. The formal announcement of this timeline is expected in November.
 
In support of the GSLIS program and its students, LACUNY sent a formal letter of support, and formed an ad hoc committee of CUNY librarians and library school students to maintain communication. The committee is also exploring more ways to serve our own library school students.
 
The 2013 LACUNY Dialogues was held at the Graduate Center on May 10 on the topic “The History and Future of Library Faculty Status.” Read more about the panel discussion and Q & A at http://lacuny.org/news/spring13/2013/06/12/library-faculty-status/
