Issue 65:3 of Tennessee Libraries is now available online at http://www.tnla.org/?page=TL65_3. The issue features two articles based on presentations from the annual TLA conference in April, one on career options with an information sciences degree and one on what to do and not do if you are leading or attending a meeting (the meeting article is truly interesting!). The issue also includes an article about the WWII Oral History Digitization Project at the University of Tennessee Libraries, and columns on technology and intellectual freedom.
Finally, this issue marks Wendy Doucette’s debut as Book Reviews Editor. The editorial staff thanks Kathy Campbell for her three years of service in this role, and we welcome Wendy to Tennessee Libraries.
