"AND WE'RE OFF...RACING TOWARDS THE SECOND WHITE HOUSE CONFERENCE"
The 1990 KLA Conference will be held in Lexington, October 24-27, at
the Hyatt Regency. State Librarian Jim Nelson offers the following
invitation:
"As each state prepares for the Second White House Conference on
Libary and Information Services, we all share the common goal:
'to develop recommendations for the further improvement of the
library and information services of the Nation and their use by
the public...'
"That's a tall order, but not an impossible one. In
Kentucky, preparations for the White House conference are being
coordinated by KDLA, and more than 100 volunteers are
contributing their time, ideas and expertise. Many KLA members
have participated in the process already, and we hope that every
member will now take part by attending and speaking up at the KLA
1990 Conference, 'And We're Off...Racing Towards the Second White
House Conference.' There you will learn more about White House
Conference activities and, most important, have a chance to share
your ideas about the recommendations which Kentucky's delegation
will take to Washington next July.
"We look forward to seeing you in Lexington."
The October 24th Pre—Conference topics will include "Disaster
Preparedness," "Lotus for Librarians," and "Basic Word Processing (Word
Perfect) Using a Lap Top Computer." The Post—Conference workshop, on
October 27th, is entitled "Planning for Excellence: Guidelines for
School Media Library Programs."
Registration booklets and further information is available from
the Kentucky Library Association, 1501 Twilight Trail, Frankfort, KY
40601.
° NEW APPOINTMENT
Cheryl Jones, of the Law Library, has been appointed to the State
Archives and Records Commission.

PATS ON THE BACK FOR ROB AKEN
The following letters were received, thanking Rob Aken for a job
well—done:
From Roger Anderson, Professor & Chair, Department of Russian and
Eastern Studies:
"I wanted to write you a short note to convey how pleased I have
been with one of your staff people. Robert Aken, acting Head of
Reference at King, has been most knowledgeable in helping me put
some research problems into motion. The results have been
excellent. He showed me things about using the computer system
which I would otherwise never have found out. Also, his
explanations to me —- and to other patrons whom I have noticed
him assisting —— were direct and clear. Even a bronze age
academic like me could understand him. From what I can gather,
computerization of library services is going along very well with
sever exciting possibilities on the horizon. Congratulations on
the movement! At the same time, having someone like Mr. Aken
available to help patrons understand and take advantage of the
computer facilities we do have at present is a real plus for the
library system."
From J. John Harris III, Professor and Dean, College of Education:
"This memorandum is to serve as a formal thank you for the
informative and instructive tour of the M.I. King Library this
afternoon. I know that with the beginning of the semester, many
demands are ever—present for the library leadership, but you
chose on the spur of the moment to take the time necessary to
provide the guided tour with just the right amount of detail,
while maintaining the appropriate amount of instruction. To you,
my wife and I are in deep appreciation, particularly since we are
new to Lexington.
. Perhaps most important, your enthusiasm and commitment to both
the University and the library was quite evident. Such eagerness
is both rare and refreshing.
Again, on behalf of both my wife and myself, a sincere thank you
is extended. we look forward to trying out many of the new
automated library services that are available."
