Message from SILS Dean Gary Marchionini
Greetings from Chapel Hill! I hope this annual newsletter finds you in good health and spirit.

You can read about many of these accomplishments by following the links below, but as always, I encourage you to reach out, visit, and become engaged in our mission of information education, research, and service.
