And another chapter of service begins . . .

I have been privileged to serve the American Library Association in many capacities. At the end of the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans I will begin my service as the newly elected Chair-Elect of ALA's International Relations Round Table. I look forward to learning in this position---and working with more people.

This week I was in one of my favorite cities, Anchorage, attending "Northern Light" Keeping Our Stories Alive," the Alaska Native Libraries, Archives, and Museums Summit 2011.  As always, I am so impressed by the energy, dedication, and resourcefulness of information professionals in this northern state, especially those who live in the Alaskan Native villages.
