I have rarely been able to supply articles but have been the grateful recipient of many shared reference citations because of the generosity of my colleagues. I have also filled gaps and holes from many of the offered duplicates' lists. The three annual meetings I was able to attend were beneficial to me as I was able to connect many of the familiar names with the helpful spirits of these professionals and their libraries. I have valued CBHL members' support and sung their praises to my staff. To these fellow members, I will say: keep sharing information both professionally and personally! You do it superbly."
