September 16, 2004

The newly-opened Strongsville Public Library, Cuyahoga County Library, 
where technology starts from below the ground!  In addition to a state-of-the-
art geothermal system, the new 35,000 sq. ft library integrates many aspects 
of technology.  Customers can use Web tablets to log on to the Internet with 
wireless access available anywhere in the building.  

RUTH WOLFISH, 2004-05 President-Elect of the New Jersey SLA Chapter, 
presents a two-for-one evening on September 16th. First, as a representative 
of IEEE ExploreT, she'll demonstrate a new trend in information access, 
from one of the industry's most respected research content providers.

"Anything that technology touches" is how Ruth describes what you'll find 
in IEEE.and now, you can find abstracts on the web and yet provide solid 
research leads. If you support research in wide-ranging disciplines from 
management science to biomedical research.professional communications 
to religion, you'll learn new tips and techniques. An engaging speaker (most 
definitely not a `talking head') Ruth charges you to "think what parts of your 
life technology touches..even Spielberg did the AI movie!" Learn to mine 
the proprietary data on the open web, in a new way, from a respected 
vendor. Even if you don't have direct access, you'll be able to quickly 
identify the primary resources that you can get for your customers. Expand 
your world, while you expand your resource options.

Ruth also will speak from her own SLA chapter experiences. You'll learn 
what's new from a chapter celebrating its 65th anniversary.and hear about 
her most unusual career path, something that has or may touch all of us. 
Come and hear how she views today's MLS and how she proves it's not 
limited to traditional librarianship. 
She'll name places, situations.like the interview where the job requirement 
was 5 years' experience (which she did not have), and how she got the job. 
Or, the question she asks of every boss she's ever had. We all should try it.

If you want to see energy and creativity in action, with candid and real 
conversation, join us on September 16th for a very different kickoff meeting 
to a new year-content, plus professional growth tips from the field, not the 
textbook. Join us!.

Come view technology at work at the Strongsville library.  SLA Members 
will be given a tour of the facility during the dinner hour.
