#NYLA12: Librarians As Community Leaders

Below is a reposting of my November 8 post on Information Space (Info Space), the official blog of Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies:

This post is part of our continuing coverage of the 2012 New York Library Association conference happening this week in Saratoga Springs, NY. 

Kusturie Moodley is a current grad student in the library and information science program at Syracuse University’s School of Information Science. She shared her excitement with me a few minutes after attending an inspiring session at the 2012 New York Library Association conference (#NYLA12).

“It’s not what the librarians want the communities to do. It’s what the communities want the libraries to do.” -Kusturie

Kusturie on Librarians as Community Leaders:

Session: Information Literacy for Distance Learners

Presenters: Rebecca Lubin, Albany Public Library; Erica Freudenberger, Red Hook Public Library; Cassie Guthrie, Pioneer Library System

Stay tuned for more coverage of #NYLA12!
