A shout out from the Academic & Special Libraries Division!
Did you know that members of the Academic & Special Libraries Division make up about 40 percent of the overall ILA membership (100 out of 250 ILA members)? These members play a very important role in supporting ILA’s mission and efforts. During the 2017 Division meeting, the 26 attendees talked about efforts to recruit new members, ways to continue all the great networking that occurs during conferences during the rest of the year (stay tuned for more sharing via the ILA Blog), and shared cool things that are going on in our libraries. We are especially grateful for the efforts of Molly Montgomery, ACRL Idaho Chair, for all the work she’s put into increasing communication among academic librarians, including a great Academic Unconference held last summer.
If you have questions about what the Division has planned or want to get more involved, please contact current Chair Stephanie Bailey-White any time!
