Beyond being the president of the world's oldest professional association of librarians -- with over 60,000 members -- Dr. Roy is a Professor at the University of Texas at Austin School of Information and a fantastic researcher and activist for access to information, especially relating to Native cultures.

After the talk, we will have a reception sponsored by the HLA and run by our ALA Student Chapter. Analu Josephides will greet Dr. Roy with an Oli.
