SDSU's Special Collections Librarian Ann Bahde writes about her summer plans:
First my cousin's marriage to an Iranian woman in Chicago in May, which promises to be a rollicking good wedding;
then a presenting a seminar on using special collections materials in instruction at the awesome Rare Books and Manuscripts Section (ACRL) Preconference in Philly at the end of June;
read/worship Emily Dickinson on a shady green next to a brook in an Oregon valley for vacation in first weeks of July;
in August a visit to my fellowship(ping) husband (in Chicago for the month).
In between all that traveling, I'll be writing and producing video tutorials on key concepts in special collections usage, and trying to put together a weekly salon-ish program for the fall, which will invite all interested persons to come together to view and discuss a particular source or collection in our holdings from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.
