This Rumor is true: long-time bookseller Scott Alan Smith is pursuing his MLS and is enrolled at the University of Texas, Austin’s iSchool. He’s still working for Alibris, and continues to organize the Acquisitions Institute at Timberline Lodge, along with Faye Chadwell, Oregon State University, and Nancy Slight-Gibney, University of Oregon (for Timberline, see, and note this year’s keynote speaker is Katina Strauch!).
