One of the folks I have had the opportunity to work with through my service on the ALA Executive Board is Ria Newhouse. She was one of two "next gen" librarians who presented to the EB at the beginning of the Annual Conference in Orlando. I found the information she presented interesting and compelling in terms of thinking about how ALA will need to change. That information was an article in LJ that August. Ria was one of the 2004 LJ Movers and Shakers.
Now, she is a cover girl. The current (April 15 issue) has her latest work Professional at 28. [For the record, her birthday is the day before the cover date of LJ. It is an interesting article about her life as an up and coming academic library professional. Read it!
Ria is on my list of recommended candidates for Council. If you have not voted, vote for her....vote for me!
