Library School Outreach
Marcella Lesher, Co-Chair

The committee continues to recruit new ambassadors through announcements in the NASIG Newsletter and through personal contact at the NASIG annual meeting.  An informal breakfast of NASIG ambassadors was particularly successful.  The informal gathering also attracted others to the table who became interested in becoming library school ambassadors.  The committee will focus on more face-to-face contact with NASIG members to let them know about the Ambassadors Program.

Basic guidelines for the relationship between LSOC members and their assigned ambassadors have been established.  Committee members are to contact ambassadors a minimum of twice a year to remind them that they will be asked to make sure that their schools know about the awards program.  Contact should be made in September and April.  The April contact will be to verify continuation in the program and check to see if the ambassador will be attending the NASIG conference. 

Ambassadors are now assigned to the following universities:

Carol Green 
University of Southern Mississippi

Emma Cryer 
University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Eugenia Beh 
University of Texas, Austin

Joseph Hinger  
St. John’s University
