George Peckham-Rooney Taking Over As Caucus Communications Lead

Please welcome our new Communication Lead of the SLA Embedded Librarians Caucus George Peckham-Rooney, Data Analyst at Emory University. If you look back at the SLA Embedded Twitter Account, the first post is a share and comment from Nadine on a post George made from his personal twitter about their participation as panelists on the first Embedded Librarians Caucus webinar. George focuses on building and employing systems for capturing, analyzing and organizing information. He specializes in building focused taxonomies/ontologies for information retrieval, but has other professional interests that includes user experience design, information retrieval/research and knowledge management. Within that capacity he is adept at analyzing data and developing decision-supporting deliverables with an aptitude for enabling knowledge capture and leveraging it for increased value. He is a strong team player with ability to work independently and has a penchant for finding innovative solutions to problems.

Thank you to Nadine Anderson (University of Michigan-Dearborn) for her many years of service as Co-Convener & Communication Lead of the SLA Embedded Librarians Caucus. Nadine initially volunteered to be the Communications Chair for the caucus and then took on more responsibilities and became Co-Convener as a result. Her responsibilities included: coordinating webinars and conference proposals, panels and outings for the caucus; managing and writing content for this SLA Embedded website and blog; and keeping the SLA Embedded Twitter Account current.
