[photo taken by ALA photographer. Posted with Permission] A group of 106 Emerging Leaders gather for a fast track to ALA and professional leadership. Began in 2007 as one of ALA Immediate Past President Leslie Burger’s six initiatives, the program enables newer librarians from across the country to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into ALA structure, and have an opportunity in a leadership capacity.

I am very happy to be mentoring two EL groups this year as part of my duties as chair of the Web Advisory Committee. One group will be assisting with the on going usability work at ALA and another will be working in the ALAConnect site.
