Happy New Year from LHRT News and Notes!
As we launch into 2019, I am excited to announce that our blog now has a total of four volunteers who will be posting and editing content. I have asked our new volunteers to introduce themselves in future posts, and highlight their interests in library history.
Many of you who have subscribed to the blog for a while already know me, Brett Spencer. I’m a reference librarian at Penn State Berks in Reading, Pennsylvania. I attended the University of Southern Mississippi’s School of Library and Information Science for my MLIS. My library history interests include the relationship between American libraries and Cold War-era nuclear and space programs.
Look for posts in the next few weeks from our new volunteers.
I also invite you, our readers, to consider submitting a short paper about the history of your library, or your favorite theme in library history, in 2019. Our blog welcomes both formal and informal pieces from everyone.
Hoping your 2019 has started well! –Brett
