The American Association of Law Libraries welcomes Maya Norris as its new director of publications. She is responsible for coordinating the production of the association's printed materials and publications, including the AALL Spectrum.
As one of her first duties, Norris is working with the Law Library Journal and AALL Spectrum Editorial Board and Advisory Committee to appoint the AALL Spectrum's editorial director, a new volunteer position supplemented with a small honorarium. While Norris will serve as the Spectrum's managing editor, the editorial director will determine the magazine's editorial content. Further information about applying for the editorial director position will be announced in a press release scheduled for next week.
Maya Norris comes to AALL after serving as managing editor at the American Student Dental Association, where she gained extensive experience publishing magazines, newsletters and reference books. She replaces Peter Beck, who left after seven years with AALL.
