BIBCO members,  The agenda for the Joint BIBCO/CONSER OpCo sessions and for the BIBCO sessions appears below.  In addition to the BIBCO Operations Comittee representatives, we welcome others to attend.  I appreciate the RSVPs I have received from a few local BIBCO libraries.
Following our meetings, we will post summaries of the proceedings.  Some topics of ongoing interest may be incorporated into our BIBCO-at-Large meeting at ALA on Sunday, June 24 here in Washington, DC.  If you have topics that you would like us to include for that meeting, it's not too early to share them with me.
See you at the meetings!  Carolyn
