Chapter member and Treasurer Diane Dias De Fazio was interviewed this past January for the "Break Room Chats" podcast - produced by the New Professionals Section of the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) of ALA.
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."

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.

The tour featured V. Heidi Hass, Director of Research Services, and Peter Gammie, Senior Cataloger and Collection Development Librarian.
We had a unique view of the Morgan Library, followed by a tour of the McKim Building and a behind the scenes tour of the Sherman Fairchild ReadingRoom. Heidi and Peter have a combined 35 years of experience at the Morgan Library. Thank you to everyone for making this tour possible!
