ACRL President (2010-2011)

I had the honor of serving as President of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) in 2010-2011. As a division president, I worked closely with Mary Ellen Davis (ACRL Executive Director), the ACRL Board of Directors, Roberta Stevens (who was ALA President that year), all of the other division presidents, and many other ALA and ACRL staff.  That experience was very formative of how I think about the role of the ALA President and the priorities that I highlight in my Candidate Statement.

It was a very busy and productive year. There is a detailed annual report online but I thought I might also share some of the highlights:

We could accomplish so much because of the generosity of ACRL members in contributing their time and effort to our collective work. It was an honor to lead the association as President and to support the community in achieving so much, which included ensuring that groups had the resources that they needed and doing everything possible to remove barriers and obstacles when they appeared.
