This week I attended a reception at the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection of the University of Texas Libraries that commemorated the Gloria Anzaldua Papers.
October was filled with attendance at a number of new and annually scheduled events, including:
Media Training at ALA, Chicago

We also spent several weeks hosting guests, including Dr. Tangi Steen from the U of South Australia.

Meanwhile, the UT-Austin women's basketball season opener was an exhibition game against the Houston Jaguars. The Longhorns are on their way to a winning season.
