STLHE Initiative

I'd like to heartily endorse this important iniative, spearheaded by Flavia Renon and Janice Scammell from Carleton University. I've heard repeated criticism in the instruction librarian community that we spend too much time talking to each other -- here's an opportunity to get involved with the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education -- and widen the dialogue. Thanks to Flavia and Janice for getting it off the ground and for sending along this invitation to all interested librarians.
