I spoke about a big project from last year, the receipt and ingestion of a very large donation of books from the estate of a former faculty, Dr. Homer Blass, who reposed in 2013. May he rest in peace.

The presentation, which I called "Emptying the Dump Truck" was all about the planning and execution of receiving large donations to your library. I spoke about the critical necessity of planning, most of which can be done before a large donation appears, as often donors don't give much advance notice of a donation being given.
|These were just two of the many, many shelves of books he had.|
Well, rather than talk about it all here, I'll share this instead. Library Journal's online edition published a review of my presentation! You can read about it here. I'm very grateful to LJ for taking notice of my work, calling it " perhaps the most actionable information of the conference". Who knew?
