#SLALeftBehind for #SLA2015
I was supposed to present at SLA in Boston on Sunday, June 14th, but on May 29th changed any chance I had of attending. I had my 4th miscarriage and with the blood clotting disorder I have my Doctor recommended I not fly. We didn’t announce this miscarriage widely because wouldn’t it be nice to announce good news for once, but that is why I won’t be attending. I have long hoped to present at an SLA annual, as it has been one of my favorite conferences. And this time I was on a panel, SLA Career Connection Seminar: It’s Not Easy Being Green: A Real World LIS Discussion for Students and New Professionals, with Kim Dority, whom I have long admired, and the fantastic Beth Maser and Margaret Smith, moderated by Dianna Magnoni. If you get a chance to go, I can’t say enough about the panelists and highly recommend it!
Yes, it stinks to not be going but that is where Twitter saves the day for me! I will be following the hashtags:
