Go LSO!

At the risk of sounding stupid for making the same apology and excuse for not blogging that every other blogger seems to make... sorry I've been so quiet lately, but I've been busy. And since I expect the busy to continue until this semester draws to a close, I expect to go back to radio silence shortly. However, I have some awesome news that I've just got to share.

The University of Arizona's Library Student Organization has just won the American Library Association Student Chapter of the Year Award!

In the spirit of ALA's New Member's Round Table (NMRT), the Student Chapter of the Year Award is presented in recognition of a chapter's outstanding contributions to the American Library Association, their school, and the profession. The purpose of the award is to increase student involvement in ALA through student chapters, and to recognize future leaders in the profession. (ALA | Student Chapter of the Year Award Committee)

LSO has done some really great things this past year: the symposium, the blog, oodles of professional development programs, lots of fun social events, getting virtual students involved by letting them use Skype to attend our meetings, and a bunch of stuff I'm forgetting right now. It's been a great ride and helping out with all this stuff has been one of the highlights of my time in library school. So I'm over the moon that LSO has received recognition like this.

Rock on, LSO!
