This year we are holding monthly discussions from Sept. to Dec. 2003 and Feb. to May 2004 for a total of 8 discussions.  The topics includes “I wish I had know” (Sept.), intellectual freedom and national security (Oct.), library budget (Nov.), When did you know you want to be a librarian (Dec.), performance evaluation (Feb.), diversity (Mar.), interview (Apr.), and salary negotiation (May).  This year, we hope to be able to archive our discussions online.
