DC/SLA Radio is Back!! With Library Leaders!!

DC/SLA Radio is back! And in honor of the SLA Leadership Summit starting this week we’re kicking off the new year with our Library Leaders Series by interviewing Blane Dessy. Join us for Part 1 of our interview where Blane talks about how he started his library adventure. In fact, if you were going to make a movie about Blane’s career, a good title might be: Blane’s Excellent Adventure. He’s had such an interesting and successful career, it seems to us as if he’s been on a career-long adventure, culminating in his current position as the Executive Director of FLICC/ (Federal Library and Information Center Committee) Fedlink (Federal Library and Information Network) at the Library of Congress.
