Hello, my name is Dr. Brad Eden, and I am the Dean of Library Services at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana.  I am contacting you as vice-chair of the ACRL Research Planning and Review committee.  We would be interested in having a Spectrum Scholar participate in a panel discussion on trends in higher education and academic libraries at ALA Midwinter.  Can you suggest anyone, or provide me with some contact information for a few of them?  There would be two other speakers; we are looking at Joan Lippincott from CNI, and Dr. Martin Halbert, Dean of Libraries at the University of North Texas, at this point.  Would appreciate any information.  Thanks.  Brad
