Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, professor and coordinator for information literacy services and instruction at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is one of two candidates for the 2017-18 presidency of the American Library Association (ALA).
“I am honored to be nominated as a candidate for President of ALA. I joined ALA as an MLS student and have been a continuous member since that time,” said Hinchliffe. “I have learned so much from so many colleagues in the association. It would be a privilege to give back to the profession by serving in this role. As ALA President, my goal will be to enable all ALA members to benefit from their connection with the association in order to better serve their communities and strengthen our libraries. Together, we can improve and transform people’s lives and our society.”
