Last week ALASC was honored to have ALA’s Member Services Director for the New Member Roundtable (NMRT), Julia Frankosky, as a guest speaker to kick off the Spring semester. Julia discussed a number of key topics including ways for students to get involved in ALA’s NMRT. As a very large organization, it can be hard for students and those new to the library profession to fully navigate all of the benefits of an ALA membership. One helpful gateway¬†in getting started with ALA is to look over the plethora opportunities within the NMRT including a number of committees and publications:¬†http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm
