Let's hear it for TexShare!

Today I attended my second meeting of the TexShare Advisory Board. Doug Ferrier (Southmost College) did an admirable job of chairing the meeting and moving us through the agenda. TexShare is moving quickly in providing access to the databases to K-12 school libraries. After the meeting I stopped by the Library Science Collection. How wonderful to find new LIS reference books and the latest issues of journals/publications all in one location.

iSchool students are working out the last details related to their spring 2006 Capstone projects. This semester I'm serving as faculty supervisor for students working on the student liaison program for, developing a training manual for volunteers at the music library of a student-run radio program, creating a wiki, and providing training on TexShare databases at rural public libraries and HBCU in Texas.
