Our colleague, Dr. Marcia Lei Zeng, was recently appointed to the World Digital Library Working Group on Digital Library Guidelines at the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA). This prestigious working group consists of ten members from ten countries on six continents. The group is charged with developing digital library guidelines and best practices for use by libraries and other cultural institutions around the world.
Dr. Zeng is a professor at the School of Library and Information Science at Kent State University. Her scholarship, research, and teaching have centered on knowledge organization and representation, metadata, digital libraries, and database quality control. Dr. Zeng is known to many of our members as the leader of several popular METRO workshops, including "Introduction to Metadata." Please join us in congratulating her on this exciting new undertaking.
