Carol Tilley, assistant professor at the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library and Information Science, will present a juried paper at YALSA’s Trends in YA Services session at the 2013 ALA Midwinter Meeting. Tilley’s paper is entitled “Comics: A Once-Missed Opportunity.” The Midwinter event, which is hosted by YALSA past presidents, will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, in the Washington State Convention Center, rm. 213.


The paper was selected by the YALSA Mid-Winter Paper Committee. Funded by the Friends of YALSA, the committee selects and funds one individual each year to go to ALA Midwinter to present a research paper that in some way addresses a topic from YALSA’s Research Agenda. Winning paper authors also receive up to $1,500 to help defray travel, registration, and hotel costs.
