Now that summer is here, I have so much to do. First up–ALA Orlando I will be attending ALA in Orlando in just under a week from now–attending the affiliate assembly, learning how to represent SCASL and South Carolina in the coming years. Yes, that is right, I am assuming more leadership within the organization. […]

I always learn something new that I can use immediately. This session did not disappoint. My favorite take away: Mac users who […]

I feel like Steve Anderson is like a next door neighbor. I mean seriously, he’s from North Carolina, just above my own home state.

The […]

Tomorrow (October 12, 2015) I spend the day in Rock Hill, SC at Sullivan Middle for the Old English Consortium’s Librarians Staff Development. I was invited to lead a session that I led at SCASL last March. It is worthy of updating here because I have revised some of the presentation as tools and materials have […]
