Dan will be speaking about his book, It Gets Better: coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living

I had the privilege of attending the John P. McGovern Award lecture by Clay Shirky at the Medical Library Association's 'Rethink' conference in Minneapolis, MN on May 15, 2011. His dynamic presentation, "Technology/Media: The Future, Innovation, Business Strategy, Marketing and Sales, Ethics and Culture" proved to be the highlight of the MLA lecture series.

Knowledge River and SIRLS experiences
by Janice K. Nez
Important moments to remember:

(1)        KR Cohort(s) social meetings for a chat, over coffee, dinner, or popping in just to say hello.

(2)        KR Cohort(s) meeting as a study group, helping each other out to make sense of it all.

(3)        KR Cohort(s) rally for events, making Tacos and a Movie under the Tucson Stars a night to celebrate.
