Hi All Spectrum Scholars,

Are you interested in serving on the Library Leadership and Management Associations (LLAMA ) Mentoring Committee? If so, than you are invited to volunteer for this great committee.  Our committee gets lots of work done and you'll also work with a great group of individuals. 

As a group, we, plan, implement, and oversee an ongoing LLAMA mentoring program.  The mentoring program is designed to facilitate and encourage the professional development of current and emerging library leaders.  These activities are intended to support the LLAMA Strategic Plan.

We are looking for someone with a technology background or skillset OR are serious about developing these skills independently.  You must also be a member of LLAMA or be willing to become a member upon appointment to this committee.

This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in becoming more involved with ALA and LLAMA!  If you want to learn more about committee work, LLAMA, mentoring, or are looking for a volunteer opportunity in a supportive environment while sharing your tech skills, we would love to hear from you.  Perfect for anyone new to committee work!

Please fill out the volunteer form and tell us why you'd like to join the LLAMA Mentoring Committee.  If you have any questions, please contact me directly at agonzalez@library.tamu.edu

Thanks,

Adriana Gonzalez

The Spectrum Scholars Interest Group (SSIG) is looking for new members! We have a great team in place for 2009-2010, but we could use about 8-9 more members to round out the group.

What is the Spectrum Scholars Interest Group? We're a team of past scholars from a variety of professional settings, class years, and backgrounds who's charge includes:

  • Cultivating the peer-mentoring and networking aspects of the community of Spectrum Scholars;
  • Representing careers in libraries and the Spectrum program at local recruitment opportunities;
  • Increasing the participation of Spectrum Scholars in ALA Committees and leadership;
  • Raising awareness of the Spectrum Scholarship Program; and
  • Promoting the interests and concerns of the Spectrum Scholars throughout the Association and the community at large.

Sound like the kind of group you'd like to join? If so, I'm looking for scholars who are great at

  • planning and organizing events;
  • exhibiting at career fairs;
  • coordinating conference programs; and
  • working with social networking technology.

If you have any of these skills and are committed to improving and expanding the Spectrum Scholarship program, you'd be a great SSIG member! To apply for a spot, send an email to me at varellano@gmail.com with your name, Spectrum year, qualifications, and reasons for wanting to join SSIG by Saturday, September 12.

New members will be selected and notified by Wednesday, September 16, 2009.

This Community brings together past and present recipients of ALA's Spectrum Scholarship and other library diversity recruitment initiatives to support the active involvement of new professionals in ALA and their communities, to build connections between Scholars across the country for their mutual support and advancement, and to facilitate ongoing professional development and leadership opportunities supporting retention in the field. All are welcome to join!

Established in 1997, the Spectrum Scholarship Program is ALA's national diversity and recruitment effort designed to address the specific issue of under-representation of critically needed ethnic librarians within the profession while serving as a model for ways to bring attention to larger diversity issues in the future.
