Presidents Report
« on: June 02, 2015, 10:35:22 AM »
Hi All,

In April Rebecca Hyams and I attended the SCLD Conference in Cooperstown. Some things discussed at the meeting were Open SUNY Affordable Learning Solutions (ALS). Check out the website to see what is going on with Open SUNY Textbooks; OER and MOOCS. Before the meeting there was a preconference on assessment. To learn more about SCLD/SUNYLA and assessment, attend the Assessment SIG at the SUNYLA conference on Thursday, June 5, Library 1014.

In May Jill Locascio and myself attend the METRO 3rs program “Welcome to the Profession Open House” that was hosted for brand new librarians. We mingled and chatted with the new librarians and SUNYLA donated a raffle prize of a free one year membership, a $25.00 amazon gift card, a SUNYLA bag from the Maritime conference and a water bottle from the Albany conference.

Next year SUNY Binghamton will host the SUNYLA conference.

As the year ends, so do some of the positions. Jill Locascio has been appointed as the new liaison to the METRO 3rs. We thank Katrina Frasier for her three years of service!

We are also in need of chairs for a few other positions, and Rebecca Hyams is working on this.

Thanks, it’s been swell!
