This account was set up and is maintained by Valerie Hawkins, the Library Reference Specialist of the Library of the American Library Association (ALA). Hi!

This account was set up just to specifically give the Reference Desk of the ALA Library a LiveJournal.com account. It is not, nor should it be assumed or presumed to be, any kind of "official" American Library Association blog, web log, or online journal. There's a list of official ALA blogs, Facebook Pages, Twitter accounts, and more, at ALA's Read Write Connect Wiki.

Please direct any and all questions about libraries, librarians, and the American Library Association to the Official ALA Library e-mail address, library@ala.org.

Visit and contribute to the ALA Professional Tips Wiki.

See the ALA Library list of bookmarks at Delicious.com at http://delicious.com/alalibrary.

See my profile on Facebook.

Keep up with me on Twitter @alalibraryval.

And there are way too many pictures of my ever-changing Second Life avatar, ALALibraryVal Miles, at my Flickr photoset.
