SWANpond is the bi-weekly newsletter that focuses on SWAN's membership and opportunities to come together and learn, improve, and share resources. You'll find member-library perspectives as we interview and visit our members, and share what's going on in our community. SWAN staff will also write guest intros to the newsletter so you can get to know us better, too. Expect to see upcoming opportunities to get involved in SWAN's user groups, committees, and other gatherings where you can engage with the membership. And we'll continue to share the latest news with links to the support website, so you'll be kept up to date with consortium activity.
