Message from the Chair


Kerry Keegan, Editor


STARS has a lot on the ball. From our interlibrary loan practitioners’ workshop, “Everything You Always Wanted to Know about ILL” (, to creating resource sharing web publications, to member outreach, STARS focuses on relevance for our members and our profession.

We also have two new initiatives underway. First, our STARS web editors are planning a revamp of our STARS website. By Midwinter, we will have a new homepage to better connect you to the things we do. Second, STARS wants to give members better opportunities to provide feedback on our conference programming and training. To that end, STARS is also revamping how we evaluate our programs and how to communicate member ideas to the rest of the section.

If you would like to become involved in our dynamic section or have questions out what STARS can do for you and your library, please drop me an email ( or give me a call (865-974-6866). There is always room for more STARS.
