22 February 2008


Strange as it may seem, it's time to think about the June SLA Conference in Seattle. The preliminary program is out and, as usual, I am looking for people to report on sessions for The One-Person Library newsletter. I pay US$25 per session for 2-3 paragraphs on the session and its relevance for solos.
I assign reporters first come, first served, so volunteer now. (I will, of course, repeat this post again until I get all the sessions covered.)

Here are the sessions for which I need reporters.
