Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe

Joyce L. Ogburn

Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, associate professor and coordinator for information literacy services at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is the 73rd president of ACRL.

“When I stood for election to this position, I spoke repeatedly of the important of advocacy, continuous professional learning, and organizational agility. Our venues for advocacy include not only local and institutional settings, but also higher education and governmental policy writ large. Continuous professional learning is consistently one of the areas that members value highly about ACRL, and we are all challenged individually and collectively to continue to improve and expand our skills as the information, education, and research environments in which we work evolve. As a member-driven organization, ACRL seeks to be agile and nimble in responding to today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities. My goal is to offer expanded opportunities for members to pursue their interests in meaningful ways and to benefit from their personal connections with the association.

“As I begin my presidential year, I am excited about the value of academic libraries project [which] began under Lori Goetsch’s leadership. I look forward to sharing the findings from ACRL’s work in this area and determining how we can continue to build the evidence base that documents our effectiveness and influence. As ACRL embarks on a process to create a new strategic plan in the coming year, the value project will inform our discussions about the future of ACRL and the profession and assist in identifying our future strategic priorities and initiatives.

“It is an honor and privilege to serve as the President of ACRL. Even in these challenging times of economic and social change, I envision a bold and exciting future for academic librarians as our institutions reinvent themselves in today’s knowledge and information society. I look forward to collaborating with the Board, ACRL staff, and members as we work together to ensure that ACRL continues to develop and flourish as an organization.”
