Journal club: facilitator sign-ups are full, Robert Miller and Barbara Cheadle will work together to coordinate
CRAB submissions: Claire has been in touch with Monique and Sean who expressed interest and Monique may write about the Innovative Library Classroom Conference she attended.
Summer forum: ~35 attended and provided valuable feedback. ACRL MD officers are working on developing an action plan and Sara will communicate with membership soon to invite involvement in new opportunities.
MLA Conference: ACRL MD programs call has been posted and a few submissions have come in. Reminders to submit are scheduled. The conference committee is interested in a human library preconference collaboration for academic and public libraries.
Fall program planning: The Program Approval Form has been returned from MLA’s Professional Development Panel with helpful feedback. Sara will follow up to pursue reciprocal pricing with ACRL Delaware Valley Chapter. The planning committee will move to next steps as soon as the finalized program approval is received.
LLAM speaker: ACRL MD is agreeable to help promote a January program with Laura Lippman since LLAM needs to commit to selling 25 copies of the author’s book at the program. Laura Lippman has broad appeal so we can also share this info with MLA members more widely.
