Welcome to the new SLAISmatters e-newsletter, a fresh and lively way to share with our community all the news from the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, the iSchool at The University of British Columbia. We are planning two winter editions and one summer edition, replacing our twice-yearly PDF newsletters. In addition to communicating our news and events more efficiently, we are hoping the e-format will be easier for you to share.
We are also ready for another change: a new name for the newsletter. For this we invite your ideas. What name captures the spirit of all the hard work of faculty, staff, students, alumni and everyone else here at the iSchool? Email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 18. If your suggestion is chosen, you will win your choice of a $100 gift card to the UBC Bookstore, Best Buy or Chapters. (If two or more people suggest the same name, a draw will determine the gift card winner.)
Until then, it’s time to enjoy this first issue. Please let us know what you think by emailing us at email@example.com with your thoughts. We look forward to hearing from you.
