SLA 2005 Annual Conference Info on News Division Web Site
I put a page on the News Division Web site with the few details I know about the News Division’s activities during the SLA 2005 Annual Conference. When I learn more, I’ll update the page accordingly. The above link is the direct link. If you’d like to view the page in the site’s frames, from the homepage, go to the conferences section and follow the link to the SLA 2005 Annual Conference.
The awards page now has some of the 2005 award winners on it, all of whom deserve their honors. Congratulations to Richard Geiger of the San Francisco Chronicle, Ron Larson of Capital Newspapers, Alice Pepper of the Detroit Free Press, and Kathleen Hansen of the University of Minnesota School of Journalism!
I’d guess Richard is getting the award for his fabulous musical contributions to the News Division suite during the annual conferences. His talent is certain Kwapil-worthy. Ron was my mentor in graduate school and a pleasure to work with while he edited News Library News. Alice’s bright and cheery personality make her ideal to work on the division’s membership issues. She always makes me laugh at conferences and has taken some great photos of my beanie. Kathleen Hansen has siginificantly contributed to the scholarly literature about news librarianship–which is quite scarce to begin with. I cited many articles of hers during my graduate school years.
