Note the editorial update on page 3 of the May Issue of MLA News, where it is announced that Dina McKelvy is the new co-editor of the Internet Resources and Technology column of the MLA Newsletter. Dina will share the editorial duties with Nancy Glassman.

Dina is the immediate past-Chair of the NAHSL Executive Board, as well as a current member of the Professional Development Committee. As the article states, Dina is the manager of automation and planning at Maine Medical Center in Portland, and has found time to produce book reviews for JMLA and get some articles published.

By the way, she’s provided us with some great examples of achieving points to fulfill AHIP advancement criteria, i.e., writing book reviews, editing columns, and writing up special project or activities for journal or newsletter publication! As credentialing chair, I had to make that point!
