“Beth joined SLA in 1996 while in graduate school and has been active in the association throughout her professional career. She has been president of the SLA Upstate New York Chapter as well as chair of the chapter’s Awards Committee and co-editor of the chapter’s newsletter; she has also chaired the Physics-Astronomy-Mathematics (PAM) Division and served as the division’s secretary, chair of its Nominating Committee, and leader of its book discussion group. She has a passion for learning and for sharing what she’s learned—she has delivered dozens of presentations at international, national, and regional meetings, written several articles and book chapters, and authored one book, Sudden Selector’s Guide to Chemistry Information Resources (ALA Press 2012).”
We congratulate Beth on this significant career achievement!
