Hi Technical Services Enthusiasts,

This year the NETSL Annual Conference will be virtual and will take place on Friday, April 14, 2023. This year's theme is Passion into Action: Your Initiative in Technical Services. Save the date to hear from what people are passionate about and learn what makes them energized. Consider submitting a proposal to share your own Technical Services passions. Also consider recognizing a colleague's hard work by nominating them for this year's NETSL Award for Excellence in Library Technical Services. The NETSL Award recognizes and honors contributions to the field of library technical services in New England. We want to hear about those technical services librarians and library staff who have inspired others. Do you have a colleague who has tackled today's challenges in technical services and triumphed? Do you know a person who leads the way in innovation, collaboration, or data integration? If you know someone who fits any or all of these descriptions, please consider submitting a nomination.
