University of Texas at Austin LIS Professor Loriene Roy
was just elected as ALA President
. According to the ALA Press release
, "Roy was elected with 8,898 votes. Crowe received 4,702 votes." Yahoo!
That same release, I should add, mentions ALA has over 66,000 members. To me, that shows the importance of each vote. I am grateful to Hawai'i friends who supported her election.
As you might recall, Dr. Roy kicked off her campaign in Hawai'i. I hope we can have her as a guest speaker at HLA or in the LIS Program. Check out comments
from her last HLA talk.
