Nykia Perez Kibler to Serve As SLA Embedded Librarians Caucus Convenor

Dear colleagues,

I’m happy to report that Nykia Perez Kibler will serve as Convenor of the SLA Embedded Librarians Caucus starting in January 2019. Nykia is currently Director of Information Management at the University of Pennsylvania’s Population Studies Center, where she has been a full time special academic and embedded librarian since 2001. She has been a member of the Caucus since 2016, and within SLA she is also active in the Academic Division. Beyond SLA, she’s a member of APLIC (formerly known as the Association for Population/Family Planning/Reproductive Health Libraries and Information Centers – International), and currently serves as its treasurer. Nykia emerged from a process of discussion with several Caucus members who responded to a call for volunteers last summer as the person best positioned to take over leadership at this time. I want to thank everyone who responded to the call, and especially to Nykia for agreeing to take on this responsibility.
