For Immediate Release
The University of Hawaii at Hilo University Librarian was recently appointed by the American Library Association to serve on the newly created Rural, Native and Tribal Libraries of All Kinds Committee.
Dr. Linda Marie Golian-Lui was selected for her years of service to the American Library Association and her experience serving on the ALA Council as the Hawai`i State Chapter Councilor.
The Committee is charged with reviewing issues and challenges facing rural, native and tribal libraries and to collaborate with other American Library Association committees and units in addressing the special needs of libraries that serve these special populations. The Committee is also charged with serving as an advocate for, and partner with, libraries serving rural, native and tribal populations.
In 2004 and 2005, Golian-Lui played an active role in the final naming of the Committee by requesting that “native” be added to the Committee’s name. While the Committee’s charge was being developed, she consistently brought up the need to make sure that native Hawaiian and native Alaskan populations be included in the Committee’s charge.
