UNCG Librarian Lynda Kellam Selected as Emerging Leader by American Library Association
Data Services and Government Information Librarian Lynda Kellam at UNCG's University Libraries has been selected to participate in the 2010 Class of Emerging Leaders of the American Library Association. Her participation will be sponsored by the Government Documents Round Table of the Association (GODORT)
The ALA Emerging Leaders program is a leadership development program which enables newer library workers from across the country to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into ALA structure, and have an opportunity to serve the profession in a leadership capacity. It puts participants on the fast track to ALA committee volunteerism as well as other professional library-related organizations.
Lynda is UNCG's second participant in this selective program. Cello Music Cataloger Mac Nelson was named in 2007.
