Presentation by Maila Van Heukelem who attended the UNC Summer Seminar in Prague, May 18-31, 2014.
Sightseeing and wonder in Prague! Malia talked about the course which gave her 3 credits. If you subscribe through the LIS-listserv, there is usually a call out by Chapel Hill on these seminars. They are open to all library students, librarians, and library technicians. Concurrently the program is held at Prague and London.
There were 7 students with 5 professors taking them around. Malia and co. were able to tour 14 libraries in 10 days! 2 days included lectures and 3 day trips to special libraries in: Kromeriz, Liberec, Cesky Krumlov
Interestingly, digitization is getting big after a flood in Prague so books from a particular library the group visited were shipped to Germany to be scanned.
Thank you Malia for showing us your experience in Prague! A great opportunity for anyone so be sure to be on the lookout when the seminar comes out next year!

*If you do go, be careful since there is a different grading system from Chapel Hill so be sure to doublecheck with the LIS program as well.
**The price ranges from $3950~$4400, depending on roommate or no roommate. Airfare is not included. - Kelly Campbell (Secretary/Treasurer Fall 2014)
Our tour to the Hawaiian Historical Society was a success and very informative. Administrative Director and Librarian Barbara Dunn and Preservationist Nicki Garces, both graduates of the UHM mLIS program, took time to show us some of the collection and tell us about some of the new things that are to come in the near future for the Historical Society. Mahalo for sharing the knowledge and this gem of Hawaii to future librarians!
The Hawaiian Historical Society will be holding an annual Holiday Craft Fair on Saturday, November 29, 2014 from 8:30 am - 3 pm. They will also hold an open house and book sale on Thursday, December 11, from 4 pm - 6:30 pm.
