Greetings all, and Happy Fall Semester!
I just wanted to encourage everyone to join LISSA this semester, and I also wanted to let you know that we have scheduled our first meeting. The first LISSA meeting will be held a week from today on Monday, August 31 at 4:30 p.m. in the LIS Lab, room 349H in the beautiful Curry Building. We will be discussing the upcoming events for the semester. I hope everyone can attend. There will be light refreshments served.
Membership for LISSA will be $12 for the academic year and $8 for the semester. Membership forms are available in the LIS Department. We also have LISSA tote bags for sale for $12, along with LIS polo shirts for $15. The polo shirts are from a previous semester so sizes are limited. Men’s and women’s sizes are available. I have two XL and one L available in the men’s, and S, M and L are available in the women’s. Email me if you are interested in purchasing either.
Also LISSA is planning on touring the State Library and Archives in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, September 12. We will be meeting on campus at 8:30 a.m., and we will be carpooling. We need to be at the State Library and Archives at 10:30 a.m., and it takes approximately an hour and a half to get there from campus. Please let me know if you would like to join us and whether or not you would be willing to drive.
We have also scheduled a LISSA Happy Hour at Tate Street Coffee on Tuesday, September 15 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. Please remember that Tate Street Coffee does not accept credit cards, they only accept cash. There is an ATM on site.
I look forward to seeing everyone around campus this semester, and at the LISSA meetings. I hope everyone has a great week.
