The ALCTS Board of Directors has approved the selection of Pamela Bluh as the new editor of the ALCTS Papers on Library Technical Services and Collections. The theme-oriented series publishes papers from the continuing education offerings and conference programs of ALCTS and other appropriate groups. The editor also solicits supplementary manuscripts for volumes as needed. Pamela succeeds Bradford Eden and assumes her duties immediately.
Pamela is Associate Director for Technical Services and Administration at the University of Maryland's Thurgood Marshall Law Library. A recognized authority on serials, she has published extensively as both an author and as an editor. Jack Montgomery, chair of the search committee, states, "Pamela was recommended from a group of excellent candidates. In addition to strong credentials, experience, and qualifications, she brings motivation and people skills to the position that will help make the series a continued success." ALCTS President Brian Schottlaender terms Pamela a "superb choice," noting that the Board unanimously supported her appointment.
Pamela is already pursuing a variety of projects for the series and is working closely with the ALCTS Publications Committee. She is eager to hear from planners of ALCTS pre-conferences, institutes, workshops, and programs who are interested in publishing their content. Pamela's email address is email@example.com and her phone number is (410) 706-2736.
