OITP names Tim Vollmer Assistant Director, Program on Public Access to Information

Tim Vollmer, who has served as Information Technology Policy Analyst for the ALA Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP) for the past year, has also been named Assistant Director for the Program on Public Access to Information.

During his first year at the American Library Association, Timothy Vollmer has made a big impact on OITP work. In addition to working to enhance the Copyright Advisory Network Web site, Tim has been the driving force behind technological improvements, such as the use of Twitter, that have enabled OITP to cover many more events in Washington than in years past.

Additionally, he has created Web sites for materials related to the Google Book Search proposed settlement (http://wo.ala.org/gbs/) and Traditional Cultural Expression (http://wo.ala.org/tce/). Mr. Vollmer has also taken on leadership roles in the library community – he will be the chair of a panel at both the 2009 Annual Conference and 2009 LITA National Forum. Finally, he has published an article in the January 2009 Library Technology Reports (http://www.techsource.ala.org/ltr/the-state-of-library-technology-funding.html).
