  1. ACRL is delighted to be co-publishing The Atlas of New Librarianship by David Lankes with MIT Press. We will be holding a book launch at our ACRL 2011 conference in Philadelphia. Anyone attending the conference is invited to join us at 2 p.m. in Convention Center Room 103 to celebrate this fabulous publication! David will be signing copies at that event as well as saying a few words about the book itself.
    The book can be pre-ordered now at the MIT Press site http://mitpress.mit.edu/catalog/item/default.asp?ttype=2&tid=12560.

    Thank you for noting this publication in Against-the-Grain
