LAMA leads the way with new blog

 

CHICAGO - The Library Administration and Management Association (LAMA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), announces the launch of a new blog, “LEADS from LAMA.”  The blog, which had a soft launch in August, replaces the electronic newsletter of the same name.  It is available from the News page on the LAMA web site or directly at blogs.ala.org/lamaleads.php.

 

“LEADS from LAMA” will feature news and information about LAMA, ALA and other organizations of interest to LAMA members.  Up-to-the-minute information about awards, conferences, important dates and deadlines and other resources will be included.  The blog format will enable news to be published faster and reach a wider audience through RSS feeds.

 

LAMA volunteer web coordinator Brian C. Gray, a science librarian at CaseWestern ReserveUniversity, designed the blog.  Executive Director Lorraine Olley serves as the blog’s editor.

 

The mission of the Library Administration and Management Association (www.ala.org/lama) is to encourage and nurture current and future library leaders, and to develop and promote outstanding leadership and management practices.
