Ellie Fullman for CLA Board, Student Representative

Statement of Concerns

As a student representative of CLA, I would bring to this candidacy great enthusiasm along with a willingness to be an active learner, participant, and contributor whenever possible. In fact, I can think of no greater honor than to be considered for this board position as I believe strongly in the importance and value of professional associations and would use this opportunity to try to spread this message to other information students. Personally, I believe CLA builds communities and provides opportunities for information exchange and professional growth that is invaluable to students and professionals alike and I would love to be a part of making that happen. Actively involved in San Jose State University's ASIS&T Student Chapter for the past year and a half as Membership Director, I understand the commitment necessary to be part of a board and have seen firsthand the amazing programs and services that can be offered to the community at large when everyone is committed to this goal.

Ellie Fullman's Background

Ellie Fullman is currently in her final year of studies for a Master in Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree at San Jose State University, working simultaneously as a library media instructor for a Montessori school. She received her BA in English Literature from the University of California, Berkeley and has a background of teaching Business and Vocational English to adults. Desiring a change in careers, she enrolled in a library technology certificate class at Diablo Valley College to learn more about the field and hasn't looked back since, completing the certificate program in 2010 and immediately enrolling in a Master's program. Now specializing in information organization and description, her over-riding interests are in cataloging, metadata, taxonomy, information architecture, digitization, and emerging technologies. Throughout her schooling, she has complemented her studies with a series of internships and has gained professional experience in copy and original cataloging, constructing a thesaurus, launching an iPad lending program for a university library, creating a digital repository of photographs, creating screen casts and research guides, supervising student and parent library aides, and most recently teacher training and literacy instruction which, she believes, nicely complements her passion for curriculum development and the use of logic and schemas in order to meet the needs of today's user search behavior.
