Don't forget that SUL/AIR News is one of the best ways to send out news, articles and items of interest to your colleagues throughout SUL/AIR. Our copy deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, but we do our best to accommodate late- breaking news. Along with this reminder to all staff, we'd like to send our thanks to our regulars for their continued support (you know who your are).

Let's help our e-publication to flourish by the inclusion of interesting, up-to-the-minute news and announcements.
