I want to thank the LOC staff for the constant support
you have been to AM fellows.  You really are there for
us.  You make fellows look great;)  I recently found a
great powerpoint on the LOC professional development
page.  I needed to modify it for a workshop and asked
Betty for advice and help.  Betty worked non-stop to
create a powerpoint that met my needs and worked
overtime I'm sure to have it finished for my deadline.
 The powerpoint was fabulous.  Participants had time
to browse the library resources and were excited about
what they found.

In preparing for the workshop I was surprised to find
so many new treasures, resources and collections.  The
LOC is a first stop for my research.  I love to direct
students to the exhibits and collections.

Thank you Betty, for sharing new collections and
keeping us up-to-date.  And thank you to the entire
staff for your strong support of education.
