Fellows at LC

The 2006 IFLA/OCLC Fellows had a terrific visit to the Library of Congress on Friday. We heard from leaders in the acquisitions and bibliographic access division, the NDIIPP program, and the scanning unit. We also had a quick tour of the Jefferson Building of LC, the pilgramage every librarian should make in his or her lifetime.

Friday night, we took a "DC by Moonlight" tour, visiting the Lincoln, Jefferson, and FDR monuments, the Vietnam and Korea memorials, and the Iwo Jima statue.

Tomorrow (Sunday), the Fellows will attend the May Members Council meeting. From left to right in this photo, the Fellows are Festus Ngetich (Kenya), Salmubi (Indonesia), Roman Purici (Moldova), Janete Estevao (Brazil), and Maria Cherrie (Trinidad and Tobago). Nancy Lensenmayer and I have been having a wonderful time with the Fellows, and we were commenting on the ride home from the airport on how quickly the month has flown by. Posted by Picasa
