e-mail directory of CT Librarians

iCONN maintains the statewide e-mail directory of Connecticut librarians - now located at - which is updated weekly and contains over 1,300 entries. Please check your listing to make sure it is accurate. If you would like your e-mail address to be listed, or if you need to change a current listing, please use the "update form" which you can access from the directory search screen. Also, if you see any obvious errors in the directory, please let us know. Thanks for your assistance!

The April issue of the iCONN Times is now available.

Computer Assisted Writing and Testing Grant Awardees

Thirty nine districts submitted proposals. If it were up to the quality of the proposals and not the finite amount money available, most of the districts would have received awards. Thirty five volunteers read and scored the proposals; each proposal was read by at least five people.

The awardees are: Branford, Coventry, Newington, North Haven, Portland, Regional District 16, Regional District 19, Simsbury, Somers, Stafford, Stamford, West Hartford and Windham. (Awarded amounts may not be exactly what was requested - most grants were reduced a small amount based on grant reviewers' comments...details will be e-mailed to districts.)
