Federal Librarian Fall 2010

FAFLRT Launches Rising Stars Initiative!

FAFLRT would like to recognize the activities and contributions of those new to federal or armed forces librarianship and government information management. We are announcing a new program, Rising Stars, to highlight the achievements of those new to the profession. A Rising Star will be profiled in each FAFLRT newsletter with their picture and an article detailing their relevant background and current accomplishments.

Rising Stars are those people who display a passion for the profession, both at work and via volunteer or association activities. The basic guidelines are outlined below. To nominate yourself or someone else please email Kim Lyall, FAFLRT Federal Director 09-11, at kim dot lyall at gmail dot com. Please send me your basic information and a short blurb about your accomplishments, with links to any online work, articles, or videos.
We look forward to receiving your nominations and shining a spotlight on those new to the profession!
