The American Library Association Midwinter meeting in Philadelphia was professionally and personally rewarding, as always. I gave a talk on the unusual work Denison and Kenyon College are doing in combining the technical services (back room) library functions. We're now able to do more to make ditigal resources available to our users, clear up long-standing backlogs, and generally provide job enrichment for our staff. We had fine meals with Mort & Julie, Carol Parke, and other friends. and LOVED being next door to the Reading Terminal Market with its fresh food stalls, produce, bakery (the apple dumplings were especially divine), and more!
