The OI announces the online publication of News & Notes 249 for Spring/Summer 2021.

We are happy to announce that with OI offices opening back up, we will be returning to printed and mailed copies of News & Notes this fall. Thank you for your patience as we temporarily transitioned online during this past year. In the future you will have the opportunity to opt out of mailings and continue to receive an electronic copy should you prefer. See you this fall, back in print, for our 250th issue!

"Meet the Interim Director," by Shirlee Hoffman
"Inside the CHD," by Petra Goedegebuure
"Publishing the CHD," by Emily Smith
"Carlotta Archives," by Carlotta Maher
