Eduardo Tinoco was at the American Library Association (ALA) annual meeting in San Francisco this past weekend to present an overview of veterans services offered by academic libraries in the US. ALA is “the oldest and largest library association in the world, providing association information, news, events, and advocacy resources for members, librarians, and library users.” Large numbers of veterans enrolled in academic institutions using educational benefits provided through the “Post-9/11 GI Bill” remain an invisible library constituency. To highlight what we do to help, current librarian and former U.S. Army Ranger, Eduardo Tinoco, presented an environmental scan of veteran services at academic institutions.
