Ariana Santiago, instruction librarian at the University of Houston Libraries, was recently chosen to be a part of the American Library Association (ALA) 2017 Class of Emerging Leaders (EL).

The EL program provides opportunities for newer library professionals “to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into ALA structure, and have an opportunity to serve the profession in a leadership capacity.”

“I’m very excited about participating in Emerging Leaders,” Santiago said. “It’s a great opportunity to gain leadership training and learn from librarians throughout the country. I’m looking forward to this experience and honored to be selected for the program.”

Santiago’s professional interests include instructional design, application of learning theories, and assessment of library outreach. Prior to UH Libraries, she was a residency librarian at the University of Iowa, focusing on library instruction and outreach for undergraduate students.
