These are the suggestions I received about outstanding programming at
AASL.  Thanks, everyone.  I'll looking forward to seeing you at the
LM_NET breakfast!

In an unfortunate turn of scheduling events, the AASL Research Forum is
on the program also on Friday, November 11th at 3:30 p.m. I would be
remiss if I didn't encourage AASL members to hear the results of the
studies selected for presentation: one on the use of information
technology in school library resource centers and one on the effects of
school culture on the development of an integrated school library
program. These two papers were selected by a national review panel for
their quality and relevance.

Be sure to attend the YALSA sponsored program that has Mike
Printz in it--I think it's called "You can lead a teen to
books, but you can't make them read" Mike is wonderful and
you'll be glad you heard him speak.

Paula Galland ask for programs of interest at the AASL Conference.
recommend for anyone interested in reading to attend the Count on
program on Friday, nov. 11 at 3:30P.M.  Count on Reading is an

Panelists will be giving fine ideas for reading initiatives at the
building and community level, and information about CoR will be

        Don't miss the Count on Reading Program at AASL that David
Loertcher mentioned.  I just attended his session on the initiative  at
FAME (Florida Association of Media Educators) and returned to school
inspired and ready to focus on reading as our main thrust.  Thanks,
--- and I envy all of you who will be lucky enough to attend the AASL
