Why Attend the NEFLIN Annual Meeting?  
Brad here.  So...the NEFLIN Annual Meeting is coming up on September 13 at the Schultz Center in Jacksonville.  
I thought I would let you know some reasons to attend.
Free sneakers.  Let's get right to it.  For those who attend the meeting for the first time, we give you a free pair of Chucks.
If you register by August 15. (Yes, that is tomorrow.  Our motto is register now, seek permission later). 

Other reasons:  
  • Hanging out with friends
  • Meeting new friends
  • Free swag 
  • The Food (in capital letters for a reason) 
  • Learning stuff (too much for us to list) 
  • Seeing if Brad made his weight goal this year
  • Listening to our great keynote speaker, Gina Millsap
  • New services (get the inside track on using these)
  • Free swag (worth mentioning twice) 
Those libraries who have multiple staff attend this meeting find themselves using more services and connecting with others members.  We look forward to seeing you in September!

Trainer Spotlight: Frances Harrell
In our last Training Bulletin, we snuck in a couple of late addition webinars from one of more stalwart trainers, Frances Harrell. Frances has been conducting training for NEFLIN for several years and has recently struck out on her own, becoming the Lead Consultant for Myriad.

She is starting her new chapter with two upcoming webinars for NEFLIN - Pest Management for Libraries (8/20/2019) and Frames & Exhibits in Library Collections (9/26/2019). Both webinars are at 1 PM. Attendees can expect the same great experience as in the past from Frances' previous webinars. If you work in a Special Collections or Archives environment, you will do well to try these and future offerings from her. 

If you haven't had the pleasure of being in one of her webinars in the past, there are a couple you can check out on our Archived Recordings page. Just search her name. If you don't know the password for accessing our videos, just contact us and we'll hook you up.

Have you wished for a resource that would help you organize stuff that isn't right for your library's management system to handle? Have you wanted to start organizing things but you don't know where to start? 
If so, this is the webinar for you! Pat Wagner brings 40 years worth of experience in working with databases to this webinar and presents concepts for both the novice and more advanced users. She starts with the basics needed to decide on what type of product to use as well as design fundamentals.
