The Virginia Libraries Editorial board presents the first completed volume (Vol. 62) under its new publishing format, in which articles are published individually as they become ready for distribution. A common thread across the volume’s articles is the resourceful use of technology, from the well established (online professional development delivery) to the cutting edge (proximity beacons for tours). A literature review of learning management systems focuses in on student and faculty expectations and perceptions of library integrations with an LMS. A case study reports on using LibGuides as a library website platform. Old and new technologies are featured in a column on materials lent by libraries today. Complementing the technology theme with a turn towards the social, two essay / commentary articles celebrate the community of library and information professionals in Virginia.
