Vol. 21, No.4/Summer 1999
By Jennifer Small EvertEverything has finally settled down for this NLN editor. I married in June and it's taken me about a month to get back into the groove of everyday news librarianship. This post-conference issue has been slow in coming but it's finally here!
As I mentioned in my last column, we are trying to build the content of the online version of NLN. In this issues online edition (http://metalab.unc.edu/slanews/index.html), you will find many web extras. Carolyn Edds outlines the events of the 1999 conference - a great recap of the experience if you missed it. In her annual review of the Division's field trip, Linda Henderson describes the trials and tribulations of visiting several cultural hot spots in Minneapolis. The full-text of Leigh Poitinger's CE recap is also available online. The online edition contains valuable contacts for public records vendors. Finally, additional pictures for many stories are featured online. Check out some of the great shots of partying librarians!
I would also like to thank Kathy Foley for looking back on the Division's history over the past year. This issue contains her final Footprints and Road Signs column. Check it out. It's a great recap of the blowout 75th Anniversary News Division party at SLA.
Looking to the future - Kathy's space in the next issue will be filled by Stephanie Willen Brown's new column that will focus on the personalities that make up the news division.
As usual, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (210) 250-3278. Have a great fall!
