Please reserve Friday May 19, 2017 on your calendars for this event. The event will be heldin the Student Center on the Grand View University Campus in Des Moines. This year’s theme is Looking in, reaching out: Whom do we serve? And, it gives me great pleasure to announce, that our keynote speaker will be Lisa Hinchliffe. Ms. Hinchliffe is currently Professor/Coordinator for Information Literacy Services and Instruction in the University Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She has held several leadership roles including president of ACRL 2010-11. Ms. Hinchliffe is also a widely published author with a wealth of experience and expertise. She has a reputation for being a knowledgeable and engaging speaker. Her past presentations have included,Sustainable Progress through Impact: The Value of Academic Libraries Project and NCES Datasets and Library Value. Ms. Hinchliffe is widely respected and the Spring Conference Planning Committee is very pleased to be able to bring a speaker with her reputation to the conference.

With the arrival of fall classes, Upper Iowa University Director of Library Services Rob Hudson has been settling into his somewhat new surroundings, introducing himself and providing assistance to Peacock community members visiting Henderson-Wilder Library on Fayette Campus. UIU previously announced the hiring of Hudson in June. Additional staff members include Assistant Director of Library Services Jodi Hilleshiem and Electronic Services Librarian Victoria Troemel. Previously serving as technical services librarian at Indiana Tech Law School in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Troemel began her duties in mid-September.
The ILA Conference begins next week and I hope to see a lot of academic librarians there! ILA/ACRL had the idea to bring in a speaker to talk about generational differences and as a result, we are pleased to promot the Thursday morning keynote speaker from Bridgeworks! I hope you are able to attend!
