Events are moving quickly and there is much for me to be excited about. I will begin with the wonderful opportunity I have been given to attend the Special Libraries Association conference in Seattle, WA, USA, this Summer.
As a poverty-stricken student, the prospect of exciting travel seemed a distant dream until I received a telephone call in March from the SLA telling me that I was one of four lucky winners heading west in June.
