Hi everyone!

Ahh yes, it's been awhile - can I blame it on the hectic-ness of the school year getting into full swing? Hope everyone's classes are going well so far! Please remember, if you have any questions or anything we can help with, feel free to email us!

Anyways, we're working on getting things together for the Oct. meeting. We're hoping to make the focus of this meeting "Professional Development & Certification", and answer some of the questions you all (and us too) had about getting certified, the PD courses, and field work. We're trying to see if Ross Todd, Carol Gordon (our 2 faculty advisers) and someone from Prof. Dev. can stop by to give a little chat. This is all tentative, so as we get confirmation, we'll let you know!

We're looking for a new secretary for RASL as well - the secretary is primarily responsible for recording meeting details - if you are interested or have questions on the position, PLEASE email us! It's a great way to boost your resume!

Also, as discussed, here is a link for the NJASL (New Jersey Association of School Librarians) conference for 2007 - it's Nov 14-16 - they are looking for volunteers, so if you're interested at helping out, please see the following link:

This is a GREAT opportunity to meet a lot of the movers and shakers in NJASL, make some great contacts, and find out some vital information, so take advantage of it if you can!

That's all for now - we'll keep you posted about the meeting details as they unfold to us!

I was wondering if we could talk a little bit about the courses themselves (content, different professors' styles, etc.). For instance, it was a HUGE help to know when I was registering for courses that HIB was theory-heavy and that Sarakevic - being a student herself - was very approachable and understanding...

Hi Renee,

We can definitely do that! I don't think we have room to do it in this Tuesday's meeting - but we can put a litte "review" of each of the courses on the bog. If you have requests on what classes you'd like to know about - email or comment with them and we'll talk about it!

Just remember, these opinions will be only one or two people's opinions - just keep that in mind!!!
