Commentary on Bridging Deaf Cultures @ Your Library Program in Chicago

Ladies and Gentlemen of the ASCLA

As much as I love self-promotion, I know the value of the word of another is worth more... and in this vein I offer the following link to a blog run by Holly Lipschultz, MLIS.  Ms. Lipschultz was an attendee at our SIG Bridging Deaf Cultures @ Your Library at the ALA Annual in Chicago and her report actually captures the essence of what we went over in this discussion on the Deaf Community and our need to serve them... Especially where the DCDL or the Deaf Cultural Digital Library is intended as a State-Level library that serves all four types of libraries and is about the deaf, but for everyone.
