Inquiry from ALA RUSA History Section regarding co-sponsorship
Executive Committee meeting agenda item 8.2 (New Business) is an inquiry from Janalyn Moss of ALA RUSA History Section regarding co-sponsorship of their program at ALA Annual 2012 (Chicago):
I’m Janalyn Moss. I am the immediate past chair of the ALA RUSA History Section. The History Section is currently working on a program proposal for Annual 2013 in Chicago. The program will deal with library engagement in National History Day activities. We are looking for a co-sponsor for the program and were wondering if the RBMS would be interested in joining us. I don’t have much to share with you now but we will be putting out a call for speakers soon. Also, we hope to have someone representing the Rare Books/Special Collections/Archives world on the panel. We do have a tentative acceptance from Ann Claunch, National History Day Director of Curriculum, to be our lead-off speaker.
