Seeking GLQ Book Reviewers

We are revising our procedure for reviewing materials for the GLQ. We would like reviewers to use new items from their own libraries as the review copies. We are asking that those interested in reviewing items should choose those that can be linked to the Southeast (history, gardening, biography, etc.), are written by a Southern author, or published in the South. We would also like to include children’s and young adult materials to the list along with AV materials. We also ask that reviewers not have a prior connection with the material as a researcher, family friend of the author, etc.

Please check with Karen or Sarah to reserve the title before you submit if you are interested in reviewing for the GLQ under these new parameters.

Join the GLA Assessment Interest Group!

The Assessment Interest Group exchanges ideas and information in all areas of library assessment. Topics are chosen by members; previous subjects include measuring the impact and
effectiveness of library services, the use of focus groups, and qualitative assessment of instruction.

Activities planned for this year include a peer mentor/support program for assessment activities and presentations at some of the in-state conferences.

To join the group, contact Julie Housknecht at
