March 31, 2009

An article by two members of the Janet D. Greenwood Library staff, Pat Howe, Head of Technical Services, and Stephanie Tucker, Serials Manager, appears in a national publication of the Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations (ALTAFF). The article, "Friends Team Up with Alumni Association to Launch Online Book Club," appears in ALTAFF's March 2009 news update (Volume 32, Issue 2). ALTAFF is a division of the American Library Association. The article is a slightly modified version of an article, "Friends Group and Alumni Association Launch Online Book Club," that appeared in the Spring 2009 issue (Volume 3, Issue 1) of the Friends of the Janet D. Greenwood Library newsletter. To view that article, visit http://www.longwood.edu/library/friends/index.htm, then click on "New! Spring newsletter posted." The article is about an online book club blog, the Longwood BookLink, launched in January, that is a joint effort between the Alumni Association and the Friends of the Greenwood Library. Nancy Shelton, Director of Alumni Relations, was instrumental in establishing the book club. The first online book discussion, about Lee Smith's Black Mountain Breakdown, was led by Dr. Martha Cook, Professor of English, and the second discussion, about Flying by Eric Kraft, will be led by Dr. Michael Lund, Professor Emeritus of English, beginning April 15.
