CRD Board Candidates for 2012
Following are the PaLA-CRD members running for the CRD Board for 2012.
Paul Process, New Media Librarian, Bucks County Community College
As a member of the CRD Board for the past several years I have been very involved with the Board’s activities; making the vast majority of meetings/conferences/workshops, doing tech stuff, and speaking up and contributing where I have something to add. It is under a “contributing where I can” philosophy that I am running for Vice-Chair/Chair Elect. My “grand vision” for CRD is to make sensible improvements in process and other areas of interest as a curious and thoughtful person. It is not so much that I have faith in my own estimation of my ability to be a successful VC/CE as faith in the wonderful and successful folks that asked me to consider running. In different terms, I am driven by a sense of duty and challenge rather than wont of resume fodder (I already have my dream job). I’m the New Media Librarian at Bucks County Community College. I also serve on the Southeast Chapter Board and various other endeavors of PaLA. Feel free to contact me for more information if you are so inclined: procesp [at] bucks [dot] edu.
Jennifer V. Luksa, Head of Collection Resource Management, Bevevino Library, Misericordia University
I am the Head of Collection Resources Management at Misericordia University, where I have been employed for more than 17 years. I received my bachelor’s degree in American studies from Penn State University and my master’s degree in library and information science from Drexel University. I am also a 2009 graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy for Leadership Studies (PALS). I have served on the PaLA Scholarship Committee, and most recently, I served on the Nominating Committee for the Northeast Chapter of PaLA. Currently, I am co-chairing the PALS Committee for the Northeast Chapter, and I am serving as the Membership Liaison for the CRD Board. As an academic librarian, I see the importance of being involved with PaLA, and I appreciate the opportunity that I have to serve on the CRD Board. CRD provides academic librarians from across the state the opportunity to collaborate on issues and challenges that face our libraries today. If elected, it would be an honor to continue serving PaLA and CRD.
Rebecca L. (Mugridge) MacIntosh, Head, Cataloging and Metadata Services, Penn State University Libraries
As a member of PaLA since I moved back to Pennsylvania, I have been involved with the College and Research Division in several capacities since 2003 when I first served on the Board. Most recently I completed a two-year term as Secretary. I am very interested in budgeting and have experience with finance through my membership on the ALA Association for Library Collections and Technical Services Budget and Finance Committee (2003-2007). I’ve also been very involved with the Juniata-Conemaugh Chapter, most recently serving as Chair in 2010, and the Technical Services Roundtable. I have been Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services at the Pennsylvania State University Libraries since 2000. Prior to coming to Penn State, I held positions at Yale University, Robert Morris University, and the University of Pittsburgh. I have a BA in history from Penn State, an MLS from the University of Pittsburgh, and an MBA from Robert Morris University. I am very enthusiastic about the College and Research Division activities, programs, and workshops, and would love an opportunity to further support that work through service as Treasurer.
