11/12/2015 15:20:47Amy Steinbauerbeaumontlibraryoutreach(at)gmail(dot)comBeaumont Library DistrictEarly Childhood Outreach Librarian90-100 miles. It looks like UCLA or USC would work for me! YesYesCurrently, I am on the Student and Student Chapter Outreach committee through NMRT. I have also taken advantage of the mentorship program for ALA conferences also through NMRT! It connected me with the best mentor, and she still helps me long after the conference ended! I am a member of the Public Awareness committee through ALA. I am a board member at large for the Association of Bookmobile and Outreach Services (ABOS), as well as sitting on their marketing and advocacy committees. I also presented at their national conference last year in San Diego, CA.

I have been to two ALA Annual Conferences, and will be presenting at next year's Annual Conference through ALSC.

I won the Conable Scholarship through ALA's Freedom to Read Foundation to attend the Annual Conference in San Francisco, this year.
I am very passionate about libraries, advocating, outreach, and engaging children in the library! I also love helping new librarians with their job searches! I consent to having this information posted publicly on the NMRT website

This year I will serve on the mentorship and student reception committees. ALA student chapter member- FSUI am eager to work with new and aspiriing librarians. I know that the world of librarianship can often be difficult to navigate- what groups should I be involved with, do I need to use social networking tools, where do I look for jobs, etc. If I can help, even in the slightest way, to answer some of those questions, I would be beyond thrilled.

However, I am eager to become more professionally involved and would welcome the opportunity to be a part of this work.Again, I have attended both ALA Annual and Mid-Winter. I do not currently hold any committee or office appointments at this time. I am very interested in pursuing this avenue moving forward in my career.This past summer, I participated in a panel discussion at the Kent State University, School of Library and Information Science New Student Orientation. My area of "expertise" was about getting library experience while in your MLIS program. I really enjoyed this activity, and would love to be a point of reference for current students seeking advice on how to broaden their work experience horizons.

10/3/2011 11:25:58Alison K. Codyacody[at]apa[dot]orgAmerican Psychological AssociationTraning Specialist, PsycINFOI can easily get around the Baltimore-Washington DC area. As far as farther out goes, I'd say a two-hour drive (one way) is about the limit for this. That would include Philadelphia and I think some parts of NJ. That said, I don't own a car so it may also depend on whether or not any travel expenses are reimbursed.YesNoI haven't been involved in ALA nationally, I find it a bit overwhelming. I've been heavily involved in smaller organizations - ASIS&T, mostly as a student, and now I'm the president of MD's chapter of ACRL. Once my term there is up I plan to look into getting involved with ACRL nationally, but I'm not sure what might happen with that!I'm a big proponent of starting small with your involvement - student chapter, state library association, etc. - as it's easier to wrap your head around things, less expensive to get to meetings, and the local contacts will get to know you better, which can be helpful in looking for a job.I consent to having this information posted publicly on the NMRT website

I was involved with NMRT for 10 years, and spoke several times at NMRT orientation programs at conferences. I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. (Much of my career has been involved with mentoring and professional development, as well as membership development, so this is right up my alley. I now teach library science, too.)

I also have twenty years work in library professional associations outside of ALA and NMRT, including state and regional associations.

I welcome discussions about crossing divides between technical services and public services, as I have worked in cataloging, special collections, and reference/instruction (and enjoyed them all).
