Last night, members of SOLIS and Suncoast Information Specialists (SIS) held their first combined meeting at the North Tampa Branch Library. SOLIS members were able to mingle with working professionals as well as tour the newly renovated library with Branch Manager Robin Gibson. Robin discussed many of the obstacles she faces at her library and unique ways of problem solving with a tight budget. Due to an emergency, speaker Marc Blumenthal was unable to attend. However, several of the SIS members graciously volunteered to discuss their experience in different fields of librarianship, including the ALA Student Chapter President, Libby Cope. SIS announced the winners of the 2014 FLA Scholarship, including SOLIS Treasurer Jodi Geever-Ostrowsky. Congrats Jodi!
