The latest issue of the OLA Quarterly is now available!  This is the second
notice for those who haven't had time to look at this issue, and an effort
to get more readers for the authors who worked hard to share their
experience and knowledge with us. There are individual links to the
articles below.

The theme for this issue is "OLA Today: Oregon Librarians Respond to
Changing Times," and the Guest Editor is Lynne Stahl of Multnomah County
Library. From Lynne's introduction: "This issue’s contributors and topics
span academic and public institutions, rural and metropolitan libraries,
political activism and personal narrative, and programming as well as
abstraction." As you all know, it has been a year of changes and
challenges. Seven Oregon librarians have worked hard to make sense of it all
and processed their ideas to share with you. It is a remarkable issue, and
we hope you enjoy reading it.
