Little Rock College Learning Resource Center Specialist Assumes Leadership Role at ArLA

Little Rock Resource Center Specialist and ArLA President Trish Miller.

On December 7, 2012, Remington College – Little Rock Campus‘s Learning Resource Center Specialist Patricia (Trish) Miller officially assumed the role of president of the Arkansas State Library Association (ArLA). She has served as president-elect through 2012 and has now fully assumed the leadership role.

Ms. Miller was nominated and elected during the ArLA Fall Conference, held in September 2011. She is in the second year of a three-year term of service as president-elect, president, and past president.

The ArLA organization has promoted library services and the library profession as a chapter of the American Library Association (ALA) in the state of Arkansas since 1911, when only eight libraries were in operation in the entire state. Today Arkansas’ 231 public libraries and 118 degreed librarians serve a population of 2.9 million people.

Ms. Miller has been with Remington College in Little Rock since 1999, when she became the first Resource Center Specialist for the Campus, then known as the Southeast College of Technology. In 2003 she retired, and two years later came out of retirement and joined the Campus again as its Resource Center Specialist, where she is today.
