Rachel Vacek, head of Web Services at the University of Houston Libraries, joins a distinguished group of 20 experts from library organizations across the US who were invited to serve on the 2015-2016 Library Academy Advisory Board.

The Board was assembled as part of a grant awarded to the New Media Consortium (NMC), partnering with the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI). The Collaborative Planning Grant, given by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), under the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program, will allow the NMC to develop a needs assessment for online professional development for academic and research library staff, and subsequently, a project plan based on those needs.
