The Year That Was

Happy Fiscal New Year to everyone on the Federal calendar.

Tuesday saw the end to what's been a turnaround year for our library. We hired Alexis in March, and she seems to be the final piece to the puzzle. We just finished the busiest September in our 16-year history. Requests are up 31% over last year, to a point not seen around here since 2003. A few weeks ago witnessed the 25,000th request in our history. Turnaround time has been cut in half. In addition, we've incorporated an SBDC presence on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. We've been defined in Wikipedia. We've been slowly building a Spanish-language collection, and a long-overdue LISTSERV has been built for SBDC personnel.

There's miles to go . . . we're about to embark on rigorous training in GIS services. We'd like to explore podcasting, both for what we do & how to help our clients do the same. There's lots more to come.

It's been a fun year. We're looking forward to the next one!
