Jeanette Parker

Director of Library Services
Kansas College of Osteopathic Medicine

As a Christian Librarian working in higher education settings, I strongly believe in the power and ability of a professional organization to connect, educate and encourage member librarians in their professional setting, even those beyond Christian colleges and universities. I have worked in a variety of positions from student worker to director in multiple institutions for over 25 years. I have benefited greatly from my membership and participation in ACL for most of those years. As a member of the board, I would work to help facilitate connections, education and support for all Association members.
