My library director (Rik Rekowski; we were registered for it under his name) and I watched the webinar this afternoon. We both thought there were many interesting and useful ideas presented. Would it be possible for you to send me the link to the slides, and my own copy of the LJ Reference Supplement? Lois Fundis Reference Librarian Mary H. Weir Public Library Weirton WV 26062
