ALA's Emerging Leaders
I am delighted to announce that Cody Hanson, Technology Librarian, has been selected to join the American Library Association's (ALA) 2010 Class of Emerging Leaders. Elevating the honor is his sponsorship by the Library and Information Technology Association (LITA). The Emerging Leaders Program is designed to give early career library workers opportunities to work on a variety of projects and to get on "the fast track to ALA and professional leadership."
