The Documents Interest Group of Oregon (DIGOR), is dedicated to making government documents of all kinds more easily accessible and more useful to library staff and patrons. DIGOR promotes information sharing among people involved with, or interested in, government documents by sponsoring educational programs and giving documents librarians an opportunity to meet and interact.
DIGOR is pleased to announce that Sara Kelso is the recipient of the DIGOR Scholarship to attend the 2013 OLA/WLA Joint Conference in Vancouver, WA. Sara is a part-time circulation employee with two libraries in Washington County and a first-year MLIS student at San Jose State University. She is interested in services for underserved and socially disadvantaged individuals, a group in great need of access to and understanding of government information and resources. We are happy to help Sara attend the conference and take advantage of the learning and networking opportunities it offers. Congratulations Sara!
DIGOR is also sponsoring a program at the conference: Mining the Wealth of Demographic Data: American FactFinder, by Charles Rynerson, Oregon State Data Center Coordinator, Population Research Center, Portland State University. The session is on Thursday, April 25, from 4:00-5:15 pm.
DIGOR will also have an informal lunch meeting at the conference on Friday, April 26, 2013, at 12:15 pm at the Main Event Sports Grill. Please RSVP to Arlene Weible by April 25, 2013.
