    Holy cow. Is there any more information about what this is? Google is silent.

    The Louis Round Wilson Knowledge Trust is an almost secret society. This was the first meeting ever. There will be press out soon and there will be google-able findings soon after. In the meantime, you are among the lucky few to know of the LRWKT. There will be a European meeting and induction in March in Spain.

    Louis Round Wilson founded not only the UNC Library which was named after him during his lifetime — he lived to be over 100 — but also the School of Library Science and the UNC Press. But wait! There’s more!
