LITA/ALCTS Linked Library Data IG seeks new co-chair

    Greetings Linked Data enthusiasts,

    The LITA/ALCTS Linked Library Data Interest Group is looking for a new co-chair for 2017-2019. The term will begin after the 2017 ALA Annual Conference and will last for two years. We plan to stagger the appointment of LITA and ALCTS members as co-chairs, so this year we are specifically looking for LITA members interested in this post. Co-chairs are expected to attend both the Midwinter and Annual Conferences, work with their co-chair to arrange programming and manage discussions at ALA conferences, and submit reports of the IG's activities to both LITA and ALCTS leadership.

    Please write directly to the 2016-2018 co-chair, Anne Washington (, if you are interested in being the next co-chair of the LLD IG.
