AASU Librarian Selected for National Leadership Program
(October 14, 2009) Kristin Stout, a reference and instruction librarian at Armstrong Atlantic State University's Lane Library, has been selected to participate in the American Library Association's (ALA) 2010 Class of Emerging Leaders. The program is designed to enable approximately 100 library workers to get on the fast track to ALA and professional leadership. Participants are given the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, network with peers and get an inside look at the ALA's structure and activities.
Stout came to Armstrong Atlantic in 2008 with a master's in library science from Indiana University and a bachelor's from Ball State University. She says that being selected for the leadership program, "means an excellent opportunity to work with a group of professionals in my field to determine the direction and future of the profession."
University Librarian Doug Frazier said, "Kristin has continually sought out new opportunities to reach out to the campus community and to promote the library. She always volunteers to take on new assignments, and she tackles everything enthusiastically. On her own initiative, she has taken part in several American Library Association professional development opportunities."
The Georgia Library Association will sponsor Stout's participation. The sponsorship provides financial support for Stout to attend the ALA midwinter and annual conferences, to be held in Boston and Washington D.C., respectively.
