Marcella Lesher, Co-Chair

The NASIG Library School Outreach Committee is seeking volunteers to serve as ambassadors to all ALA-accredited library schools.  Part of our charge is to “foster strong relationships with library science schools and recruit the next generation of serials specialists.”

Currently, we have ambassadors working with the University of Texas at Austin, Louisiana State University, Indiana University, Dominican University, the University of Illinois, the University of Arizona, the University of Washington, Texas Women’s University, San Jose State University, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and SUNY/Buffalo.

Ambassadors can play numerous roles, including promoting the NASIG awards, identifying NASIG colleagues who might serve as mentors or guest lecturers, and/or recruiting for NASIG.

If you are interested in being an ambassador, please contact either Marcella Lesher (mlesher@stmarytx.edu) or Sarah Sutton (sarah.sutton@tamucc.edu).  We can provide you with further guidelines and connect you with a current ambassador to find out more about the program.  We would also love to talk with you at the NASIG conference.   Even if you would like to work with one of the schools already served by an ambassador we would like to hear from you.  As ambassadors cycle out of the program, we’d love to know who else might be available to serve.

We have set up a networking site for our ambassadors so that they can exchange ideas and information as well.
