In the news

—Mary Ellen K. Davis Editor-in-chief

Like your job but need a new challenge? Consider the benefits of volunteering for work in your Professional association—ACRL. When you serve on an ACRL committee or section committee you get the chance to try out some leadership and project management skills that you may not have the opportunity to try at work. You also benefit by meeting colleagues from around the country who share your Professional interests. So check out the committee volunteer information on pages 814-819 and send in that completed volunteer form before December 4, 2000.

If you have a job at a great place to work, think about nominating your library for ACRL’s Excellence in Academic Libraries Award. Committee Chair Gloriana St. Clair describes the award and how to apply/nominate a library on page 812.

As you think about Stretching your job or looking for new challenges, Bill Miller and Paul Studdard share some things they have done outside the usual library job description. Bill describes Florida Atlantic University Libraries’ role in making a documentary film about the wooden synagogues in Europe (page 777). (Thanks to Bill for providing the cover for this month’s issue.)

Paul Studdard suggests that librarians consider serving as academic advisors so that they can help students map out their educational and career strategies (page 781).

In this issue we also bring you reports from two conferences. Larry Hardesty describes the experience of the ACRL/Harvard Leadership Institute (page 805). Hannelore Rader’s impressions of the IFLA conference in Jerusalem (along with a photo of Hannelore and her camel) can be found on page 809.
