New Choice Editor. The ACRL Board of Directors has approved the selection of Rebecca Dixon as the next editor of Choice‚ ACRL's review journal for college libraries published in Middletown, Connecticut. Dixon is currently the director of the Library Services Division at the Center for the Study of Youth Development, Boys Town, Nebraska, a position she has held since 1975.

Dixon’s experience in the application of technology to a wide variety of library operations, her demonstrated management capability coupled with her one-year Council on Library Resources internship, and her experience in developing a significant library collection and services for a newly formed research center were the factors that influenced the Search Committee's selection.

Prior to her appointment at Boys Town, Dixon was head librarian at the Institute for Sex Research, Indiana University, Bloomington.

She will assume editorial duties at Choice on August 1.

Fellowships Announced. The University of Chicago Graduate Library School has announced the participants in its 1982-83 Certificate of Advanced Study in Library Management Program, funded by the Council on Library Resources (reported in C&RL News, July/August 1981, p.212).

These six are the first to take part in the program which begins this month.
