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, weâ€™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.
If you canâ€™t make it to Vegas there are still lots of opportunities to become involved in STARS. Many of our committees offer virtual participation, and weâ€™re always looking for active virtual members. For more information on our committees and volunteer opportunities, check out STARSâ€™ committees page.Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or answers.
This is my last update column as STARS Chair. Itâ€™s been an eventful, fun, andâ€”above allâ€”educational year as chair. Iâ€™ll take this opportunity to say a loud â€œThank You!â€ 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 Iâ€™m so thankful that Iâ€™ve gotten to play this role. Thanks to all of you!
STARS Chair, 2013-14
