For me, WLA’s annual conference is an opportunity to see old friends, meet new ones, and to share knowledge with my colleagues. This year’s conference was a full and interesting one, and the pages of this issue of Alki reflect that.
The conference is also an opportunity for Alki’s editorial committee to meet face to face. The editorial committee works hard to solicit, write, and edit contributions to each issue, and to plan editorial policy and operations. I want to thank all the committee members for their hard work and contributions. I also want to thank Tammy Reniche, Alki’s graphic designer, who reprised her role as conference photographer this year. And I am pleased to welcome Anna Shelton as Alki’s newest intern. Anna is a student at the University of Washington Information School and was one of WLA’s three graduate study scholarship winners this year.
The editorial committee decided to make a small change to Alki’s publication schedule, moving the December issue up to November. Alki will now be published regularly, every four months, in March, July, and November.
