Traditionally, at the start of a new academic year, Beta Epsilon Chapter Executive Board provides a sweet treat as a token of our appreciation for the support of Emporia State University’s School of Library and Information Management (SLIM) faculty. In particular, we’re grateful for the time they spend selecting and recommending nominations for membership in Beta Phi Mu, the international honor society for library and information studies. In a year of virtual meetings though, we chose to send our greetings and best wishes for the upcoming academic year digitally. We added a photo of our summer Zoom Meeting also.
It seems like a great time to identify and salute the 2019-20 Executive Committee members of Beta Epsilon Chapter of Beta Phi Mu. Here is the committee, starting at the top row and Left to Right:
Jan Brooks, immediate past president. Interlibrary Loan Librarian for Johnson County Community College Library.
Dr. Mirah Dow, faculty advisor. Professor, Emporia State University School of Library and Information Management.
Laura DeBaun, treasurer. System Director, North East Kansas Library System (NEKLS).
Carmaine Ternes, president. Retired Media Specialist at Emporia High School. Researcher, Author, Presenter, Book Reviewer, and Volunteer.
Michael Lang, secretary. Director of the State Library of Kansas Talking Book Service.
Amanda Harrison, vice-president and incoming president. Librarian, McPherson KS School System.
So here we are– making plans for a Fall Beta Phi Mu Initiation Ceremony and additional informative program for Kansas Library Association’s 2020 Virtual Conference. You’ll be seeing more of us and we hope you can join us virtually on October 29.
