  1. I will be attending from home. I have got my schedule ready to go tomorrow. And I will be watching Pat's reports from the Exhibit Floor as she lets us know what's going on


  2. I do wish they would address this:

    Surname books that have been scanned: Most are not available on line due to copyright or authors restrictions. They can only be accessed at FHC libraries. However the local FHC library has not been able to access any of the 10 books I am interested in, even after months of trying. I can't even go to SLC to look at the books - they have been destroyed during scanning according to the SLC library. Scanning these books is actually a step backwards as now the books are less accessible then before.

  3. Can't seem to access . What do I need to click on? I already clicked on everything I could find.
