Academic Section representation for KLA standing committees

I'd like to thank all of you who volunteered to serve on Academic Library Section committees this year. I had overwhelming response from the membership, and for that I'm very grateful!

The KLA Blue Book calls for one member from each section to serve on a selection of KLA standing committees. I am writing today to ask you to consider representing the ALS on several of these KLA committees. Academic section delegates are needed for the following KLA committees:

• Fundraising
• Member Services (including the Intellectual Freedom Subcommittee and the Membership Subcommittee)
• Recruitment, Mentoring and Diversity
• Scholarship and Minority Students
• Strategic Planning and Organizational Review

The charges and duties of these committees can be found in the KLA Blue Book beginning with section 30.

If you would be willing to serve on any of these committees and/or subcommittees, please email me directly at with your preferences. I look forward to hearing from you, and I thank you in advance for your willingness to serve.

Lesley Jackson
Chair, Academic Library Section
