Updated 23 September 2018.

We’ve had to slightly change our trip schedule in 2019 due to other commitments. We’re looking to try something new this year and are excited about the change. Memorial Day occurs while we are in Salt Lake. This means that the library is closed on the Monday we will be in Utah. We’ve contracted with the Plaza to reserve an instructional room for the entire day and will have our presentations on this day instead of daily morning presentations as in the past.

We’ll have short meetings every morning when the library is open, but these will be shorter than usual. Staying at the Plaza is not necessary, but our group rate starts with a check-in of 22 May and ends with a check-out on 29 May. Trip participants are not required to stay at the Plaza. To get the group rate ($93 a night-single or double occupancy–plus tax), booking by phone is necessary.

Our group is kept small to ensure everyone gets the assistance they want and need. We don’t have a full day of “scheduled group social activities” because I simply am not a big fan of them (other than optional group meals most nights).  People with a variety of research skill levels join us on our trip–some because they want some guidance their first time at the library, some want some help with their research, and others want the structure of being part of a group.

Schedule:

  • arrive 22 May 2019 (Wednesday)–informal group meeting at 6:30 pm.
