From their description, "In this episode recorded at ALA Midwinter 2017 in Atlanta, Elspeth Olson and Diane Dias de Fazio speak about making one's way in the rare books world and the challenges and benefits of creating one's own leadership opportunities."

Beta Phi Mu Theta Chapter Welcomes New Initiates (2016)

Our Initiation Ceremony & Dessert Reception took place on Friday May 17, 2016 at Pratt Manhattan Campus. 

Gina Shelton, Head Librarian at Dominican College in Orangeburg NY, gave a great talk entitled: “What You Didn’t Learn in Library School: Tales from the Other Side”. 

Gina captivated the audience with examples from her own career and encouraged us to be confident (she even showed us some of Amy Cuddy’s confidence-building poses). Gina graduated from Pratt’s School of Information in 2014 and was inducted into the Theta chapter of Beta Phi Mu that same year.
