The Washington Library Association itself is on display in this issue of Alki. The issue’s contributors reflect the occupational variety of the association’s membership, with submissions coming from managers, a retiree, technical staffers, librarians, two students, a professor, and a trustee. We hope you enjoy it and, if you are not presently a member, please consider joining this year. There is a lot of work to be done on behalf of our state’s libraries, and we need you.
Please read our columns this issue. We debut the “Encore” column, which follows up on reports begun in past Alki articles. Thanks to Alki Committee member Bonnie Taylor for the idea and for all the short articles in the premier column. “The Solinus Page” offers excerpts from the PLA conference diary of iSchool student Jenine Lillian. In “Who’s on First?” iSchool professor Kenneth Himma looks critically at Article III of the Library Bill of Rights.
