Second Galley Chat!

We enjoyed the last one so much, that we’re doing it again, tomorrow at 4 p.m., Eastern.

Here’s your opportunity to let your fellow librarians know what galleys to move to the top (or bottom) of their To Be Read piles. Log on to Twitter at 4 p.m.; hashtag is #ewgc (for more explicit directions, click here).
