SLA Georgia May Meeting

by Margaret (Meg) Butler

Folks,

You have seen the save the date! You have seen the call for presenters!

The wait is over!

The SLA GA Chapter May Meeting will happen Tuesday, May 24, doors open at 11:45, program beginning at noon.

Please join your fellow SLA Georgia members at Hudson Grille in midtown for a great lunch and some rapid fire learning opportunities!

Sarah Mauldin, Director of Library Services at Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP, will talk about using free and low cost tools to turn data into visualizations to help you help stakeholders understand what the Library does.

John Cruickshank, librarian at University of Georgia Extension, will answer the reference question that took him from Fairmont, Griffin to Athens, Greece.  What began as a simple reference question about a local African-American high school has evolved into a research collaboration with anthropologists, food activists, oral history librarians, communication scientists and now urban planners in Athens, Greece.

Ericka Loze-Hudson, Director of the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE) HQ
Library, Ft Benning (HOOAH), an Army Librarian for over 36 years will discuss her role as the

director of the MCoE HQ Donovan Research Library and its unique collection.

Carey Huddlestun, Assistant Professor Librarian, will address the joys and frustrations of being a librarian at Kennesaw State University’s Performing Arts Library (PAL), a subject specific library in close physical proximity to the college and departments it serves.

John Jackson, Business Research Librarian, will present several sources that he uses at the law firm Sutherland Asbill & Brennan to help attorneys and the Business Development department understand client businesses and other companies and industries.

Meg Butler, Associate Director for Public Services at Georgia State University College of Law Library, will explain the trending interest in mindfulness and share resources that librarians or their library users may find helpful or interesting if they want to learn more.

Jonathan Germann, Digital Services Librarian at Georgia State University College of Law Library, will explain how the internet is ‘just’ an API: an overview on how simple scripts can leverage the world’s largest dataset.
