If Only I’d Known When I Started!

About Timothy Hackman

Librarian for English & Linguistics, University of Maryland Libraries. Member of LES since 2006.

Get ready everybody! The Literatures in English New Members Discussion Group forum is fast approaching.  We will gather in the Museum  Room of Denver’s Crowne Plaza Hotel on Saturday, Jan. 24th, from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. to talk about anything and everything of concern to members new and old. We will seek the answers to age-old problems and emerging mysteries and hope to tap into both the wisdom and experience of our long-time members as well as the fresh and innovative perspective of our new members.  Bring your questions, problems, solutions, flashes of brilliance and genius, and join the conversation. Part of the forum will include a discussion centered around the theme, “If Only I’d Known When I Started!”.  Start thinking now about some of the things you wished you had known when you first started as a Humanities/English librarian (even if that start date was just last week).

If you have suggestions for topics you would like us to be sure and discuss, please drop a note to either Frank or Arianne, and we will weave them into the conversation.

And if you can’t make it to Midwinter, please feel free to post your thoughts in the comments of this post.  Hopefully we can also continue this discussion on the blog after Midwinter.


Co-chairs,  Frank Gravier ( & Arianne Hartsell-Gundy (
