    Can I just say that this blog is awesome? I saw your presentation at ACRL and before reading about it in the program, it had never occured to me to talk with our service learning director about getting involved from the library’s aspect. I’ve gotten a lot of good ideas and hopefully she will hear me out! 🙂
