LSOC Seeking New Library School Ambassadors
Kara Killough and Marcella Lesher, Co-Chairs

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, Indiana University, the University of  Arizona, the University of Washington, Texas Women’s University, the University of North Texas, University of Southern Mississippi, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Queens College, St. John’s,  California State-San Jose,  SUNY-Buffalo, and Kent State.

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.  Check out our webpage at http://www.nasig.org/committee-library-school-outreach.cfm.  We also have a couple of newly created webpages, linked off of the main page, for ambassadors and for ambassador guidelines.

If you are interested in being an ambassador, please contact either Marcella Lesher (mlesher@stmarytx.edu) or Kara Killough (kara.killough@serialssolutions.com).  We can provide you with further guidelines and connect you with a current ambassador to find out more about the program.  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.

If you are planning to go to Palm Springs, watch out for us.  We’ll be looking for you!
