41st Annual ARLIS/NA Conference, Pasadena

Greetings all,

The conference is rapidly approaching and I wanted to draw your attention to several wonderful sounding panel and poster sessions in which members of our division are involved.  I hope that you’ll be able to attend at least some of these and show support for your ADSL colleagues. Unfortunately, I won’t be attending the conference this year, but it sounds like a terrific program.
