  • Nykia Perez Kibler to Serve As Caucus Convenor

    Dear colleagues—

    I’m happy to report that Nykia Perez Kibler will serve as Convenor of the Embedded Librarians Caucus starting in January 2019. Nykia is currently Director of Information Management at the University of Pennsylvania’s Population Studies Center, where she has been a full time special academic and embedded librarian since 2001. She has been a member of the Caucus since 2016, and within SLA she is also active in the Academic Division. Beyond SLA, she’s a member of APLIC (formerly known as the Association for Population/Family Planning/Reproductive Health Libraries and Information Centers - International), and currently serves as its treasurer. Nykia emerged from a process of discussion with several Caucus members who responded to a call for volunteers last summer as the person best positioned to take over leadership at this time. I want to thank everyone who responded to the call, and especially to Nykia for agreeing to take on this responsibility.

     --Dave Shumaker
    Caucus Convenor, 2015-2018
  • Website Transition

    Firstly, we'd like to thank everyone in the community who has stayed with us through the difficulties we've experienced with our website this year. To address these problems, we are in the process of moving towards a more stable platform. SLA Chapter sites are moving to Connect Microsites. This is the same platform that has been hosting our community discussion forums. In addition to the Connect features SLA is already using, now each Chapter will get a home page hosted by Connect.

    You may have already noticed some changes to Connect as this transition begins. We are still using Wordpress at the moment with the SLA organizational wide goal of migrating to Connect by March. We appreciate your input and feedback. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Joy McNally Brandow, Nancy Burt, or myself.

    Thank you,

    Dana Eckstein Berkowitz
