No Shelf Required Fan Club

Wow, my first member!  Thanks Lora.  I’m glad to see that the resources in NSR are assisting library students too.

Dear Sue Polanka,

I’m a library student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  I just did a research project on the future of reference books for a collection development class.  In my research I came across several columns where you addressed just this topic.  I just wanted to write and thank you for being such a proponent for electronic resources and encourage you to continue motivating librarians to edge their libraries into an online reference model!  I’ve really enjoyed reading the columns!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Lora
