Director of Murray Library, Messiah University

“Linda has served on the ACL Board of Directors in various roles including Director-at-large (2002–2004, 2014–2017) President (2004–2008), and Past President (2008–2010). “As the association looks to the future, it is important to build on the strengths of individual members, groups, networks, institutions, and partnerships to address the evolving nature of publishing, open access, expectations of library users, emerging technologies, and external challenges such as the pandemic. As many of our members are approaching retirement, it is essential to continue to develop a strong foundation of “next generation” library professionals to assume positions of leadership in the association at all levels. My contribution to this future is my experience in academic libraries over the past 25 years, adjusting to changes in publishing and the profession, and effective collaboration with other ACL members.”
