Sweet, Sweet Ethics

This promises to be an interesting event hosted by the Oregon chapter of SLA.


It’s time to talk ethics! To make this seemingly dry topic a bit sweeter, we’re serving it up with wine, chocolate, and baked treats. Light refreshments will be served, but do your mother a favor and have some dinner before you dig into dessert with us.

In between sips and nibbles, we’ll talk about the SLA Professional Ethics Guidelines that were finalized in November 2010 and how they apply to our lives as librarians/information professionals/humans.

Please RSVP no later than Monday, April 11 at 5pm. The details–

SCALA’s Brown Bag Talk – April 16, 2011

SCALA is proud to announce the brown bag talk for spring semester on April 16, 2011. We have scheduled a panel discussion  titled Being Future Ready with ORSLA and SLA. This will be a  panel discussion about the benefits and value of joining a professional association. The panel will talk about why it is important to be a member and get involved with ORSLA and SLA as a student. It promises to be a lively event and great exposure to some of the leaders in the Oregon and national library community. The panel will include:  

  • Cindy Romaine, SLA President, Romainiacs Intelligent Research;
  • Amy Maule, ORSLA President-elect, CH2M Hill               
  • Mecklem, Davis Wright Tremaine
  • Phoebe Owens, Wieden + Kennedy.

Former SCALA president Zoe Fisher had this to say about the event:

I just wanted to add that Cindy, Amy, Sue, and Phoebe are all very excited to meet with students! They’re funny, interesting ladies, so I really recommend you spend your lunch time with them – you won’t regret it.

As per usual, it will take place during a class lunch break. While we do not have specific time and place details yet, they will be forthcoming. Hope to see you there!
