Round-Up: April 10-24

We didn’t manage to get a round-up in last week, but that was only because we were so busy hosting some awesome events! So here’s a super-sized round-up to catch you up:

Friday, April 10th was the Pratt SILS takeover at Librarian Libations! Thanks to everyone who showed up, all the student group leaders for promoting, and especially to ASIS&T at Pratt for making this event happen!

Saturday, April 11th was our Zine-Making Workshop, with Emma Karin Eriksson. We had a great time looking over Emma’s vast zine collection, and getting started on zines of our own! If you’re interested in zine culture and/or zine librarianship, the Brooklyn Zine Fest is April 25th & 26th, and the Barnard Zine Library will have a table there on the 26th.

Tuesday, April 14th was the Perspectives in Public Librarianship Panel, which had a great turnout, and excellent presentations from Natalie Milbrodt, Lauren Comito, Betty Lacy, and Nicola McDonald. Special thank-yous to Dr. Rabina, Corina Bardoff and Anna Murphy for making this a great and informative event!

Saturday, April 18th was our Librarians @ Pratt, Part 2 Wikipedia Editathon. Thank you to SILS alumna Gina Shelton for leading an informative and fun editing workshop, and congratulations to everyone who added to Wikipedia with us! Every edit counts! To see a full report from our editathon, check out the event’s Wikipedia page.

And last, but not least, our April General Meeting was held on Monday, April 20th. We discussed #infoshow15, SILSSA Office Elections, and the upcoming Bike the Branches. Take a look at our meeting minutes for an overview, and quick links to more information about what we covered.

We had a great time at all these events, and we hope you did too! If there’s something you’d like to add, or a suggestion for the future, don’t hesitate to email us at That’s all for now, and don’t forget: Nominations for #infoshow15 must be in by May 1st!
