Message from Jill Morningstar, EBSS Chair 2018-19

Hello and welcome to EBSS!

I’m fortunate to be your chair for the upcoming 2018-2019 year. I hope to follow in the footsteps of my outstanding predecessors, and I look forward to working with many of you in this wonderful community.

This past year, EBSS celebrated its 50th anniversary, culminating in a well-attended gathering that took place at ALA Annual in New Orleans in June. Many thanks to the 50th Anniversary Planning Committee: Joyce Garczynski, Melissa Beuoy, Nancy O’Brien, Raquel Horlick, Connie Phelps, Ericka Raber, and of course, Scott Collard, who was also the recipient of our EBSS Distinguished Librarian Award. Congratulations to Scott on his well-deserved recognition!  Read more
