SUNYLA Conference 2009: Keeping the Fire, Lighting the Way

December 14, 2009

Onondaga lands were originally the regular meeting place for the five tribes of the Iroquois Confederacy (the Haudenasaunee, or “people of the longhouse”). Because of this role, the Onondagas are known as the “Fire Keepers” of the confederacy. SUNY librarians work hard at “keeping fires”: the fires of inquiry and of research; the desire for exploration and for discovery. SUNY libraries fire the imagination and enlighten the soul. And so it seems entirely appropriate that we come together for our annual meeting and conference at Onondaga under the theme:

SUNY Libraries: Keeping the Fire, Lighting the Way
