The iSchools have chosen Sanda Erdelez of the Simmons University School of Library and Information Science to be the organization’s new chair elect. Erdelez is SLIS director and professor at the Boston USA-based iSchools member. As chair elect, she will prepare to assume the organization’s leadership in early 2022, taking over from current chair Gobinda Chowdhury.
“I am honored and humbled by your support as I take on this new role,” said Erdelez in a message to her iSchools colleagues. “I look forward to working with all of you on advancing the information field!”
Erdelez previously served on the iSchools Board of Directors. She replaces former chair-elect Diane Kelly, who resigned her position in order to take on a new and expanded leadership role at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
"During our election, Sanda received broad support our membership," said Executive Director Michael Seadle."My staff and I look forward to working with her."
