Special Education Assembly Meeting
As current chair of the ALA Committee on Education (COE) and in helping to fulfill COE’s role of providing a networking platform for dialogues between LIS educators and practitioners, the Committee has offered Beth Paskoff, Director of the Louisiana State University Library and Information Science Program, and Linda Smith, Associate Dean of the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library and Information Science, an open forum for discussion at the Education Assembly during the ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC. I am happy to announce that both have accepted the invitation. This will enable Dr. Paskoff and Dr. Smith to have a national platform to discuss the issues concerning their programs and to garner the support of practitioners and others in the library community. This also will help COE define our role in looking into this matter on behalf of Council and in supporting the programs during these challenges.
