Established in 1921, the Catholic Library Association is an international membership organization, providing its members professional development through educational and networking experiences, publications, scholarships, and other services. The Catholic Library Association coordinates the exchange of ideas, provides a source of inspirational support and guidance in ethical issues related to librarianship, and offers fellowship for those who seek, serve, preserve, and share the word in all its forms.
I just got off the phone with Father/Doctor Myles Sheehan and he has agreed to do a presentation at the convention on Bioethics and Library resources. I have sent him the speaker's form to fill out. He also recommended that I contact Logan Ludwig who is the librarian at Loyola University Medical College. Father Sheehan suggested that they present together, he giving the medical viewpoint and Logan giving the librarian view. Sounded good to me, let's see if Logan agrees. I did tell Father that we don't have the money to pay for expenses but he thought Logan would still be interested.
I also wrote to Dan McKanan who is a reviewer for CLW, teaches in the Harard Divinity School and is an author. Trying to get another speaker since Dr. Darnton is unable to present.
Keeping my fingers crossed about all the emails I have sent requesting presenters. I will wait until end of this week and then consider re-emailing them.
