As the new co-presidents of SOURCE, we welcome you to one of the most unique clubs here at SCI.  Our passion is rare and unique collections, and one of our favorite activities is to visit those collections in person, and meet the people who steward them.  We also like to have those people visit us during our meetings!

We welcome all ideas for future trips and guest speakers – there are so many great places out there, but we can’t know them all.  So let’s hear from you!  Have you been to some great place, and wished you could take a peek behind the scenes?  Let us know, and maybe we can arrange it!

Although we organize activities for SOURCE, we want to encourage all members to make it a group effort to be the best we can be, and add to our school experience!

Looking forward to a great year, and thank you for your support!

As the fall 2013 semester comes to an end, it is time for me to step down as President of SOURCE. I will go into my last semester of the program in the spring and need to devote my time to finishing up the program. That being said, I have loved my time as an officer with SOURCE over the past three semesters — it has afforded me many unique opportunities for visiting rare and interesting repositories, networking with passionate professionals in the field, and for making some amazing friends!

SOURCE will be looking to fill several officer positions next semester (Spring 2014) – two co-Presidents, a secretary, a treasurer, an archivist, and a remote access specialists are needed. Thank you, and best of luck, to my fellow officers who will also be leaving and/or stepping down with me. I encourage all of you to get more involved by filling one of these spots, and taking advantage of this great opportunity!!

Happy holidays – and I look forward to seeing you at a meeting or on a SOURCE trip in the spring!


President, Fall 2013

Welcome Fall 2013


Welcome to the fall 2013 semester! Okay, we are a couple weeks early – not trying to rush summer! But we are looking forward to a new year with SOURCE!

We say so long to a few officers from last semester – Archivist, Sue Eisdorfer … Secretary, Karen Levine … Adobe Connect wizard, Carmen Negron … and my co-President, Eric Johnson-Debaufre. SOURCE had a great spring and it was in large part to these amazing individuals who helped lead the charge. Looking forward, we look to improve upon their efforts and invigorate the group with some new officers for Fall 2013!Welcome a new co-President, Mary Hussey … Archivist, Nick Sullivan… Secretary, Autumn Dilley … and Remote Access Specialist, Phebe Dickson!! The Secretary position is currently OPEN so if you are looking to be a part of unique student group dedicated to all things “library science,” be sure to contact me for details.

We will be posting information for our first meeting shortly, along with a survey for our first field trip of the fall. Stay tuned!!
