Jennifer L. Dean
ALA Councilor
Dean of University Libraries,
University of Detroit Mercy Libraries

Jennifer Dean, University of Detroit Mercy, is Michigan’s American Library Association (ALA) Chapter Councilor. The ALA Council is the governing body of ALA and establishes policies to plan and carry out programs and activities of the association. The Council meets twice a year, at ALA Midwinter Meeting and ALA Annual Conference.

We are very lucky to have such wonderful representation at the national level by our ALA Councilor, Jennifer Dean. For the past two years, she has represented MLA’s interests. Part of her responsibility is to connect Michigan to the national agenda and to represent us at the ALA Midwinter and Annual Conventions. Due to the unusual circumstances surrounding us with the global pandemic, Jennifer has been attending these events virtually and has done an outstanding job writing up her findings and reporting back out to the field.  Here is her most recent report:
