If you’re in the UK how about going to LISDIS2016? This is a conference for recent library and information graduates to share their dissertation research. There’s a call for papers and info about a travel bursary on their site. If you can’t go there in person you can follow things on Twitter @LISDISConf


My library recently did annual performance reviews. This article from Library Journal had me thinking about the effectiveness of employee evaluations.


Love reader’s advisory? An article from this week’s New Yorker describes the work of two women who have made a career out of it… as bibliotherapists. According to the article, the practice can be traced “all the way back to the Ancient Greeks, ‘who inscribed above the entrance to a library in Thebes that this was a ‘healing place for the soul.'”
