Welcome to our new and returning students! We are your Special Library Association, here at the University of Washington.
Your UW SLA officers for the 2016-2017 year are:
Chair: Anna Greiner-Shelton
Treasurer: Jennifer Wineland
Communications Officer: Nicole Sonett
Secretary: Robin Ford
Distance Representative: Sheana Corbridge
This year, you can find us at our booth during the iWelcome Week fair, or at the Garden Party we’re hosting on Wednesday, September 28th from 3pm to 5pm at the Grieg Garden. We’re excited to get to know you and learn more about your interests.
In previous years, UW SLA worked to host library crawls and tours of libraries in the Seattle area. We are looking to continue this tradition and open up the opportunity for you to hold them in your area, if Seattle is not too local. Special Library Association is a nation wide association, with regional chapters. We encourage you to get involved on a local level, meet librarians and students in your area, and discover special libraries. To find a chapter in your area, click here.
In addition to library crawls and tours, we’re looking to host informal happy hours, cafe chats, and online get togethers. We want to help you make connections and discover the different types of libraries that are all around us.
