Welcome and intro from Karen

Well, I’ve been here a bit longer than Jenny … more than 20 years to be exact, but I’m on my third job at ALA. I spent the first 13-14 years working with two of our divisions. A key learning from that experience is that even ALA veterans still have questions about how things work, what various units and committees actually do, or how to bring to reality a great idea!

In my current role as ALA Librarian and Knowledge Management Specialist, I answer a lot of questions. The most common of these have been collected into the FAQ on the ALA website (http://www.ala.org/faq). Still more have been accounted for on the ProfessionalTips wiki (http://wikis.ala.org/professionaltips/) or ILoveLibraries.org

But that’s OK .. the best aphorism from a grad school classmate was: The only dumb question is the one that goes unasked.
