The Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) has selected Cristina Caminita, LSU Agriculture/Information Literacy Librarian, as this week’s “Member of the Week.”  This honor was announced in an article/interview on the ACRL Insider website.  The article notes that Caminita has been an ACRL member since 2009 and was selected by the American Library Association as an Emerging Leader for 2013.

In the accompanying interview, Caminita says that she finds membership in ACRL especially valuable for its networking, educational, and professional development opportunities.  She also notes her role at LSU in supporting the research needs of students and faculty, particularly at the College of Agriculture, and praises the work and collegial attitude of her library colleagues.

The Association of College and Research Libraries is a professional association of academic librarians that is dedicated to enhancing the ability of academic library and information professionals to serve the information needs of the higher education community and to improve learning, teaching, and research.  It is the largest division of the American Library Association, having a current membership of more than 12,000 members.

    The oral history project to document Louisiana Cooperative Extension (LCES) continues! In his Abbeville office last week, Mark Shirley sat down with the Center's Graduate Assistant, Chelsea Arseneault, for an interview. Mark is an area agent for Aquaculture & Coastal Resources/Natural Resources in the Southwest Region for LCES. Mr. Shirley reflects on growing up in New Orleans, attending LSU, his career in Extension, and some of the physical, social, and political changes he has seen in the communities he serves. He discusses some of the issues that are most important to him: particularly marsh preservation, his work with the 4-H camp Marsh Maneuvers and of course, crawfish aquaculture. Mr. Shirley wraps up the interview discussing the resilience of the community in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The number one cattle parish before the hurricanes, Vermilion suffered a devastating loss of 40,000 cows drowned by the flood waters during the 2005 storm season. Mr. Shirley highlights how LCES is a valuable resource in times of crisis, being able to provide practical items people need to rebuild their lives. Photo by Kyle Tanglao.
