Longtime ALCTS Member, Birdie MacLennan, Passes away
It is with great regret that we share this sad news. University of Vermont librarian Birdie MacLennan passed away on March 10, 2014, after a brief illness. Birdie was a member of the ALCTS Continuing Education Committee, and a past member of the LRTS editorial board, the International Relations Committee, and several other awards juries and interest groups. She was also part of the LRTS Editor search committee.
Peggy Johnson, former LRTS editor, observed, "Birdie was a valued member of the LRTS editorial board during my tenure as editor. Her energy and enthusiasm for the profession and her support for librarians early in their careers will surely be missed. We have lost a respected colleague and a dear friend."
An obituary is available on the University of Vermont's library website.
