SLIS Student Lauren Lincoln to be ALA Student-to-Staff Representative

February 3, 2011

Congratulations to SLIS student Lauren Lincoln, who was selected as WSU's Student-to-Staff representative at this year's ALA Annual conference. Forty ALA Student Chapter members were nominated by their schools and were accepted to assist ALA staff during the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans. In exchange for working four hours a day (or a total of 20 hours), these students participating in the ALA Student to Staff Program receive free conference registration, housing, and a per diem for meal expenses. During free time, they may attend programs and participate in other conference activities.

Lincoln is also President of the Progressive Librarian's Guild Student Chapter.  She recently initiated the "Knowledge and Power" lecture series, which  is designed to investigate the ways that librarians and information professionals function within systems of power.  See the full list of student-to-staff representatives at:  http://americanlibrariesmagazine.org/student-member-blog/40-student-chapter-members-chosen-participate-student-staff-program
