Lots of Stuff Happening with the News Division Web Site
A few weeks ago, a fellow news librarian saw one of my pleas for volunteers for the Web site and passed it on to some classmates. That e-mail was forwarded to a few e-mail discussion lists and several people have stepped forward to help with sections of the site. There is now a page of Election Resources, thanks to Lauren Pressley. Alexandra Tyle submitted and updated some sources for the International News Archives page, which now has a new URL, too. A few others are working on some pages and will send me updates in the next month or so (I hope).
The preliminary program for the 2004 SLA Annual Conference has recently been updated to include the schedule of events in the latest issue of News Library News, which is only available online. Any tips about Nashville (restaurants, getting around, things to see and do, other hotels, etc.) would be a nice addition to this page.
And don’t forget that the deadline for the Vormelker-Thomas Student Award, a stipend to help a graduate student to attend her/his first SLA Annual Conference, is Monday, February 23 and the Hayden Fellowship for professional development deadline is Saturday, May 1.
