Come hear and meet ALA President Loriene Roy

The Hawai'i Library Association, University of Hawaii LIS Program, and UH ALA Student Chapter invite you to come hear and meet ALA President Dr. Loriene Roy.

The title of her talk is "An ALA Presidential Year: Service with an Indigenous Perspective" Dr. Roy is the first Native American President of the American Library Association. Some of you will remember that she kicked off her presidential campaign at the HLA Conference in Hawaii.

Beyond being the president of the world's oldest professional association of librarians -- with over 60,000 members -- Dr. Roy is a Professor at the University of Texas at Austin School of Information and a fantastic researcher and storyteller.

The program will take place at the School of Architecture Auditorium (2410 Campus Road). A reception sponsored by the HLA and run by the ALA Student Chapter will follow the program. Analu Josephides will greet Dr. Roy with an Oli. She will also be welcomed by UH Manoa Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw.
