One of the memorable experiences I had in Samara was the opportunity to
teach at the pedagogical University to all the students about to become
history teachers. I, too, used American Memory materials for that
presentation in a photograph analysis activity.

Congratulations to all! These are well-deserved and hard-won honors.
Here's some food for thought for everyone....
On one of the institute evaluations we asked what we could do to help now
that everyone was going back home. We received many answers, but the gist
of the replies was to "Be there when we need you." We still are - in a
number of ways - some obvious, and some not so obvious.
One of the ways which may be new to many of you is our expanded video
conference training program. Check out:
We started upgrading this program two months after the last institute in
2001, incorporating what we did in the institutes, as well as looking for
new programs that built on the Library's skilled curatorial and reference
staff and their resources (remember the visits to the divisions?). The
programs are free and available to all.
If you are ever in a position where you'd like to 'reach out and touch' us
via video conference, let me know. I'm always in program development mode
and would love an opportunity to work with you again.
Happy Spring to everyone,
