Message from the Chair
Hello STARS Members and Friends,

STARS is turning 10! This year marks 10 years of networking, education, and research in support of resource sharing and access services professionals. Much thanks is due to everyone whose involvement has made STARS so successful for the past decade. To honor everyone who has made STARS what it is today, we’ll be hosting a 10th Anniversary Party at ALA Annual in Las Vegas! Please join us Friday June 27, 7:00-9 PM, at Bahama Breeze Island Grille, 375 Hughes Center Drive, Las Vegas.

STARS is also sponsoring two informative programs at ALA Annual. Code4ILL:How to Grow Your Own Innovation for Resource Sharing is on Saturday, June 28, from 1:00-2:30 PM in the Las Vegas Convention Center, room S228. Finding Dead People: Genealogy and Local History Resources for the ILL Practitioner is on Saturday, June 28, from 3:00-4:00 PM, in the Las Vegas Convention Center, room N232.

You can check out our other upcoming events on the STARS Events page on Facebook.

If you can’t make it to Vegas there are still lots of opportunities to become involved in STARS. Many of our committees offer virtual participation, and we’re always looking for active virtual members. For more information on our committees and volunteer opportunities, check out STARS’ committees page.Feel free to contact me at for more info or answers.

This is my last update column as STARS Chair. It’s been an eventful, fun, and—above all—educational year as chair. I’ll take this opportunity to say a loud “Thank You!” to the wonderful members of STARS who have done such great work in the past year (and, indeed, the past 10 years). STARS really is a fantastic organization filled with hard working people, and I’m so thankful that I’ve gotten to play this role. Thanks to all of you!
