New policies and forms posted at LHR Web site. Reserve, where possible, through Orbitz. Leave copy of itinerary with department. Submit expense reports to EMS within ten days of return. Original receipts need to be submitted. (See also: official Yale travel policy PDF document).

AJL 2006 Convention taking place June 18th through June 21st at Hyatt Regency Cambridge Hotel, 575 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, tel: 1-888-421-1442. There's a Preliminary Conference Program online, and some people have started a convention blog.

Book Amtrak via Yale Travel. Actually, call Orbitz (no service fee) at 1-877-ORBITZ-1 (672-4891), since booking not yet automated through Orbitz website). Destination: Boston South Station (Corner of Summer Street and Atlantic Avenue, Dewey Square, Downtown Boston); then Red Line (southwest toward Alewife) from there to Cambridge. Kendall Station is closest to Memorial Drive (where, heading left (West) along Charles River leads to hotel). But still not very close.

ALA New Orleans, June 22-June 28, 2006. Drive between Louis Armstrong Airport and Bourbon St. takes about 26 minutes. Stay at New Orleans Marriott, 555 Canal Street, phone: 504-581-1000. ALCTS: Events by Day and Time.

Makes sense to register this time as member of the press. ALA Conference site has some information on press credentials, but doesn't say how to submit application, or how much the press pass costs. Called Lara at ALA 1-800-545-2433, ext. 5043. She wants me to fax galley proof to 1-312-280-5274, plus send another email message.

Suspend UPS delivery; And USPS. Mail will accumulate at Brewery Street station (50 Brewery St., 782-7000). This doesn't always work, but sometimes you can also suspend New York Times delivery via their Web site.

Template for Administrative Travel reimbursement, and link to various LHR forms.
