Hi, Alisa!

And just to clarify we had Scott and Robin's blessing when we were at ALA to 
demonstrate Nichole on Bookshare and collect cards to forward. We gave each 
interested person the website address and told them about the publisher liaison 
link in absence of having her business cards since she was not accessible while 
we were at ALA.  It is my hope in the future Bookshare will send a team to ALA 
(next year is in CA, I think); one to man a booth and perhaps Robin to mill 
around and make introductions.  I don't know if it entered into the equation 
last year, but I believe Bookshare had staff elsewhere during ALA.

Keep up with Nichole's recovery:
