President’s Message – A Long-Term Commitment – By Deena Adelman. In order to ensure sustainability and advancement in our careers, we need to do more than apply last-minute fixes or stop-gap methods. We need to make long-term commitments to strengthen our foundations, remain flexible, and expand our capabilities. DC/SLA serves as a valuable platform for supporting these endeavors.

President’s Message
– Deena Adelman’s inaugural message: DC/SLA’s 75th Jubilee presents a time for members and the chapter to reflect on the past and take stock of the present in order to move forward with meaning and direction. This “reflective momentum” not only comes from within but also radiates from those around us.

DC/SLA Chapter eNotes – December 2014

DC/SLA Chapter eNotes – December 2014

President’s Message

  • Legacies – Chris Vestal sums up an exceptional year for the chapter and recognizes members for their numerous accomplishments and awards.

Event Recaps

  • Event Recap – Up in the Cloud with Google Drive by Carol Abrams – Renée Zellweger’s famous line in the movie Jerry Maguire was “You had me at hello.” Google Drive had me at 15 gigabytes of free storage space. Maryland’s chapter of the Special Libraries Association held a workshop on Google Drive, which this Virginian attended and is summarizing for you.
  • Writing Series: Blogging for Work, Blogging for Life by Amber Paranick. Why blog? Blogging can help you build your presence in the professional community, grow your expertise on topics of professional and personal interest, expand your career options, develop professional connections, and satisfy your creative spirit.
  • Holiday Party and Annual Meeting by Jan Zastrow. Eighty-five DC/SLA members and friends gathered to celebrate the holiday season, fete this year’s award-winners, thank the outgoing board for all their hard work, and welcome in the new board for 2015.
  • Military Reference & Research: Sources and Resources by Malea Walker. There is more military information freely available online than you could possibly imagine, and even more held in the archives and collections of the many military and government libraries in the DMV area. Here are some takeaways from an event that featured 27(!) speakers.

What’s Your Theme?

  • Why Not? – by Jessica Bland. Asking herself “why not?” has led to many new career opportunities for Jessica.
  • Community and Tenacity – by Kathy Kelly. My career has always required both personal perseverance and dependence on my various communities.  Not one or the other, but constant recourse to both.
  • Always Network! – by Ramona Howerton. Don’t wait until you need a job or to learn a new skill to network.  It’s the people and opportunities along the way that keep us moving onward and upward in our careers.
