Announcing the new LITA Blog Editor

We are proud to announce that Jessica Gilbert Redman will be the new editor of the LITA Blog. 

Gilbert Redman has been the web services librarian at the University of North Dakota for the past three years. She coordinates and writes for the library blog and maintains the library website. She has completed a post-graduate certificate in user experience and always seeks to ensure that end users are able to easily find the information they need to complete their research. Additionally, she realizes communication is the key component in any relationship, be it between libraries and their users or between colleagues, and she always strives to make communication easier for all involved.

“I am excited to become more involved in LITA, and I think the position of LITA Blog Editor is an excellent way to meet more people within LITA and ALA, and to maintain a finger on the pulse of new and emerging library technologies. My goal for the LITA blog is to give a voice to more people involved with technology in libraries and to keep everyone up-to-date with how libraries are using technology in new and innovative ways. I want to be sure we’re telling the stories that we don’t always get to hear in order better learn about making libraries more helpful for our users,” said Gilbert Redman.

Watch for calls from Jessica for regular and guest contributors coming soon.
