So far over a dozen articles have been suggested -- I'm very pleased with the response. I'm going to send a note to various other discussion lists, but please feel free to spread the word yourself. We'll keep taking suggestions until April 2012.

Even though it's a precursor to the anniversary, I think Albert Tracy Huntington's ten-year review, "The association of medical librartians; past, present, and future" read before the Assoc. of Med. Libs. at its annual meeting in Atlantic City on June 3, 1907 contains important historical material. It is interesting in its review of the materials "exhange" (so importent in those days) and more interestingly in the desire for increased exchange of professional collaboration. Especially pertinent is Huntington's comment, "Further effort should be made to increase the list of free journals. It may be that the larger the Association grows the more reluctant will lay publishers become to put the names of our members on their free list." Free access and its consequences was an issue then as now! The minutes of that very first meeting and the address by Dr. Gould is truly seminal.
Citation is A. T. Huntington, "The association of medical librarian; past, present, and future," Medical Library and Historical Journal. 1907 June; 5(2):111-123.
