Let me start by officially welcoming everyone to Pulse: The official blog of the HBCU Library Alliance. This forum is our way of staying connected, engaged and informed with one another to celebrate milestones, share exciting news, discuss issues, and advertise positions. Let us stay actively engaged in the Alliance through Pulse!
My focus, as chair, will be the sustainability of the HBCU Library Alliance. I owe a debt of gratitude to the Alliance for its role in shaping me as a leader. Through its leadership institute, I was able to hone the necessary skills and aptitude to take on a leadership role. Thus, I am extremely devoted to ensuring the longevity and future success of the HBCU Library Alliance.
I look forward to working with the board and the membership to ensure that the HBCU Library Alliance not only survives; but thrives, as it works to transform and strengthen its membership by developing leaders, preserving collections and planning for the future.
