Congratulations to our creative, innovative and inspiring leader, Holly Hinman, who was named CLA's Member of the Year!
If you missed the award ceremony, don't worry. We're working on making a video available online (perhaps as an archived webcast!) of Holly receiving the award and her acceptance speech. Stand by!

Response to Conference Workshop Requests

While we were at the CLA Conference in San Jose we received a number of requests for specific workshops. In response to some of these requests, we will be scheduling north-south sessions of both Survival Spanish for Library Staff and Survival Skills for the First-Time Library Supervisor. The sessions will be scheduled for early in 2005 -- check the training section of our website for specific dates and locations.


Testing All Spyware Removal Products

Adam Baratz has a great article on Ars Technica that discusses the testing of the top 5 anti-spyware tools. Most people find that using a combination of Ad-Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy works the best, but this test takes a look at what actually works. It turns out that these testers found Ad-Aware to be far and away the best program for spyware removal. If you're too busy to read the whole article, you can skip to the conclusion.


Anne Lipow Memorials Scheduled

I just heard from Anne's daughter Jenny that there will be a memorial gathering this Sunday, November 21, at the LeConte School Auditorium, 2241 Russell Street, Berkeley. Jenny says, "This is an informal gathering for local folks (although some, like Anne's sister Ethel, are coming from afar), an opportunity to speak about Anne's meaning in our lives. It's also a chance for us to record these spoken thoughts for Anne's beloved granddaughters, Sydney and Toby (and others who can't attend because of distance or conflicts)."
