I am ALA international Spotlight

I am ALA INTERNATIONAL SPOTLIGHT is one of several new initiatives by ALA Immediate Past President Loida Garcia-Febo to expand ALA’s global presence. By highlighting and recognizing talented international members from different regions around the world, ALA is truly a global association with a strong mission in supporting library workers and advocates. Each month, I am ALA INTERNATIONAL SPOTLIGHT will feature a new international member who will share how ALA has supported their work and how they see the profession today.

This month, we feature Kathryn Philip, Academic Librarian/Lecturer, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria.
