Member Spotlight

Thanks to the many interests our sections represent, LLAMA has a diverse membership including new librarians, directors, HR professionals, architects, fundraisers, and more.  Each month the Membership Committee will feature one of these members in the Member Spotlight.  It's a great way for you to you meet your colleagues and find members with similar interests.

To see yourself in the spotlight, just send an email to the Membership Committee with some basic information.  A member of the committee will then follow up with you.  It only takes a minute and the committee would love to hear from you. 

Current Member Spotlight:

Zara T. Wilkinson
Reference and Instruction Librarian
Rutgers University
Camden, NJ

LLAMA member since 2014

Professional experience, particularly LLAMA activities:

I am the Vice Chair/Chair Elect of the LLAMA New Professionals Section. Outside of LLAMA, I am currently serving as the Chair of the NMRT Endnotes committee, a member of the ACRL LES Conference Program Planning Committee, and the ACRL LES Member at Large. I was selected as an ALA Emerging Leader in 2014.

Why you would recommend LLAMA to a colleague:

The NPS Planning Meeting at the Midwinter 2014 Conference in Philadelphia was my first LLAMA meeting – ever. I know that was true for many other NPS members as well. As part of NPS, I’m excited to show newer professionals that they too have a place here. LLAMA offers new professionals a chance to learn from leaders and managers from across all kinds of librarianship, to develop vital leadership skills, and to shape both their own career paths and the future of the profession.

What was your favorite class in college?

I have a BA and MA in English, so any of my literature courses!
