Northrup and Waddell will be have a poster session together where they will discuss their findings when charged to “survey the Alabama Library Association membership and ALLA non-members in order to gather information about satisfaction with the association, membership trends and preferences, and ideas for rejuvenation,” explained Northrup.

Goss will moderate a panel discussion on the use of library instruction to raise the profile of the library.

Goss joined the Samford faculty in 2006. He replaced Northrup as reference department chair in January after she was named associate director of the library. She has been at Samford since 2002, and Waddell has been an assistant librarian since 2000.
