Community and Fundamentals

Sponsored by Leadership Directories, TRAK Records, Safari Books Online, and LexisNexis

DC/SLA has had a fabulous 2013! Celebrate all our success this year and register today for the DC/SLA Holiday Party Annual Meeting!

There'll be lots of time for catching up with old friends and meeting new ones while we enjoy fantastic food and drink at the beautiful University Club of Washington, DC. During a brief business meeting, DC/SLA President Marie Kaddell  will recognize all that we've accomplished this year, we'll thank the 2013 Board for all that they've done and welcome the 2014 Board, and we'll recognize our outstanding membership with awards!

But that’s not all! Since this  year our focus is on Community and Fundamentals we’ll also be hosting a book drive for the US Tribal Libraries. There are over 280 tribal libraries throughout the United States, including 37 tribal college libraries.  They serve as community centers, tribal archives, reading rooms, and homework centers for specific American Indian tribes.  Many of these libraries are supported by the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums, but are in great need of materials to share with their communities.

TIME: 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

LOCATION:  The University Club of Washington, DC
