This and That

Yes, it’s been a long time since the last post. I’m trying to do better. Stay tuned to see how that works :).

Saturday there was a fun article in the New York Times featuring Fireman’s Fund insuring movies. It reminded me of my promise to update you about insurance articles.

It also reminded me to let you know we’ve started sending out emails called “Collection Selections” highlighting articles we think might be of interest to our membership as well as new publications which have been added to our collection. If you’re interested in getting added to that list, please feel free to email me: shart@insurancelibrary.org

I also wanted to mention that this week is a big week at the library. Remember last year when we mentioned Don Malecki and Greg Deimling coming to Boston to do a couple of seminars? Well they’re back!

You can still register for either of the classes their teaching on Thursday March 29th, or the breakfast discussion on Friday March 30th:
