GLMA Blog and listserv – Must Reads for GA SLMSs

Posted in Uncategorized, Updates at 1:06 pm by maf

Our Georgia Library Media Association has started a new blog that I highly recommend you subscribe to or visit on a regular basis. It’s a “community blog,” with SLM people from all over the state contributing on a monthly basis. You will find some UGA people there. It’s worth it just to see Susan Grigsby’s monthly calendars, which include every possible almanac event you would ever want to know about.

From January through March, GLMA helps us keep tabs on the Georgia General Assembly. Updates come across their listserv almost daily, sometimes containing calls to action. As budget talks progress, we need to know what the people under the Gold Dome are thinking.

Blogs are very easy to subscribe to if you use a “reader.” If you want to use Google’s, just find “Reader” under the “More” area. If you have a GMail account and an iGoogle page, you can have blog entries delivered automatically to your Reader or to your iGoogle portal. I’m still working on the email subscription to this blog to make it ultra easy for you, but after hours of trying have had no luck.

Don’t forget to send calendar information this week regarding EDIT 6380 for summer Saturdays – I’ll continue to take input through Feb 2. We are looking at Saturdays only and trying to eliminate dates on which a large number of people would have to miss.
