Travel Awards Make Chicago Easy
With the 2012 SLA Annual Conference coming up in Chicago this July, there have been lots of travel grants being awarded to members. I’d like to recognize our colleague, Amanda Adams from Nipissing Law Library in North Bay, who has been awarded the Wolters Kluwer Law & Business Non-U.S. Law Librarian Travel Grant Award by the SLA Legal Division. Congratulations to Amanda, and see you in Chicago!
