How I Spent My Summer Gyrations
By Terry Webb, Library Administration

This summer I was cornered into being the chairperson of a new committee of the CSU Council of Library Directors (COLD) for the coming year. It is the System-wide Technology Initiatives Management committee, or STIM. I and the other COLD and STIM folks, including staff from the Chancellor’s Office (CO), spent a lot of time in early summer getting the group organized and setting up the first meeting, which we held in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. see story
