Don't know about the rest of you but my desktop (computer) and desk (furniture) piles are getting out of control already and school has only been in session a month! I always say that I am a visual organizer to excuse the messiness but I think I need a reality check. Note to myself: clean up after homecoming week.
Thanks to all those who made the UELMA Fall Workshop possible this year, especially Bridget Merrell and John Smith. I especially enjoyed the panel of SUU librarians who presented the session Helping Your Students Succeed in College. Here's a question I added to sophomore orientation as a result:

The points I convey are that effective researchers are willing to ask for help, experiment and explore new sources of information.
I am still looking for Utah K-12 library web sites which teach information literacy skills online. The intent is to link excellent examples to the ULA Library Instruction Round Table site.
