John Carlo Bertot and his two new appointments

John Carlo Bertot has been elected chair of the American Library Association's (ALA) Library Research Round Table (LRRT) and appointed to the Florida Library Association's (FLA) Legislative Committee.

LRRT was founded in 1968 to contribute toward the extension and improvement of library research; to provide public program opportunities for describing and evaluating library research projects and for disseminating their findings; to inform and educate ALA members concerning research techniques and their usefulness in obtaining information with which to reach administrative decisions and solve problems; and expand the theoretical base of the field.

The primary goal of the FLA Legislative Committee is to set a library-oriented legislative agenda for Florida's libraries and to seek implementation of that agenda at the local, state, and national levels.
