1. Second REFORMA National Conference
In its long history of working hard
to improve library service to Spanish-speakers, REFORMA has had
one national conference. That's why this August's get-together
in Tucson is a very big deal. This will be a
great chance to exchange ideas with some of the most energetic,
knowledgeable, and imaginative librarians in this branch of service.

2. Indigenous Languages
I know many of you are working in
areas with lots of speakers of languages such as Mixtec, Zapotec,
and Nahautl. Has anyone made outreach or service efforts directed
toward these groups? Is anyone interested in collaborating
3. Lingual Library Links
From: Clara M. Chu, Assistant Professor
UCLA Department of Information Studies
Hi, all. I had not referred
you to the "LibraryLand: Outreach: Services for Non-English
because the list of links is not
complete...However, since it was just sitting in front of me I just
noticed that they provide a reference to Multilingual World Wide
Again, it's not complete but a good resource you should check out.
