She served on the Advisory Committee in 2013 as the new Student Liaison after winning the SLA-San Diego Student Scholarship just prior to graduating with her degree in 2014. She immediately secured a position at UC Irvine as an Education & Outreach Librarian before coming back home to San Diego to work at the National University Library as the Health and Human Services Librarian. In addition to her active local involvement with SLA-SD, Zem is also on the Executive Board of the Southern California Instruction Librarians and has been a continuous member of ALA, CARL, ACRL and SLA since 2011.

Director: Beth Autin (Librarian, San Diego Public Library and San Diego Zoo Global)

Beth first joined SLA in 1998 and served as SLA-SD Membership Chair from 2006-2008. She is very excited to be back on the SLA-SD Board, serving as one of our two Directors, and welcomes your Fall Seminar ideas! Beth has over 15 years of experience helping organizations efficiently access and manage information. Her variety of career experiences includes working as a librarian in biotech companies, law firms, public libraries and as an independent information consultant to the pharmaceutical, medical device and diagnostics industries. She joined the library team at San Diego Zoo Global in 2015 and is currently Associate Director – Library Services.

On behalf of the 2015 Nominating Committee, thanks to our nominees for agreeing to serve, and we look forward to an exciting year!
