Message from the Chair


Kerry Keegan, Editor

STARS members have been busy in the past few months and volunteering up a storm! We would like to congratulate Chair-Elect Christina “Tina” Baich and Member-at-Large Megan Gaffney for representing resource sharing in this year’s RUSA Section Election. Also making waves is Margaret Ellison, who will now be acting as Director-at-Large for the RUSA Board.

Our new initiatives are still underway and the STARS team is focusing on compiling the data collected at ALA Midwinter in an effort to improve the quality and relevancy of our many offerings, including those upcoming at ALA Annual in Chicago.

If you would like to become involved in our dynamic section or have questions out what STARS can do for you and your library, please drop me an email ( or give me a call (865-974-6866). There is always room for more STARS.
