LAUC at 50 - Santa Barbara
Sally Willson Weimer, UCSB librarian retiree
I decided to become active in LAUC to learn more about the role of governance in an academic librarian's responsibilities. Several librarian mentors had encouraged me to learn more about academic librarian leadership and to participate on committees. As a teaching and collections librarian, I wanted to outreach to colleagues and other academic members in the university. And, I really appreciated the sense of collaboration and teamwork to plan, enhance, and improve our services and programs to our valuable academic community. And, I am very enthusiastic that the LAUC policies and programs will continue to provide librarian members opportunities to thrive and excel to achieve those goals and services for the benefit of our awesome and amazing university community.
