CoALA Officers


Ryan Buller


 I have been the Access Services Librarian at the University of Denver since 2013.  Before that, I was the Access Services Unit Coordinator at Western Illinois University.  I received my BA in History and MS in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois and an MA in History from Western Illinois University.  I am involved in the Colorado Association Libraries through the CAL Leadership Institute.  I am also involved in the American Library Association’s RUSA Professional Development Committee as a member.  I am also currently the chair of both the RUSA STARS Licensing and Legislation Committee and the LLAMA SASS Access Services/Circulation Committee.
Julia Bordeaux

Julia Bordeaux received her MLIS from the University of Denver, and has an MA in Interpersonal Communication from Regis University. She has worked at the Auraria Library, Denver Public Library, and most recently Red Rocks Community College. She was also the Volunteer Sub-Committee Co-Chair for CALCON 2012. She is passionate about student learning and success. She is also very interested in creating meaningful assessments that measure student learning outcomes and information literacy strengths/ gaps. In her previous career, Julia was a higher-education textbook publisher’s representative, so her unique perspective with regards to vendor relations makes her an excellent librarian.

 Past President
Carol Smith

Carol Smith, Library Director, Nielsen Library, Adams State University, after a successful 17-year career in the business world (commodity futures trader; VP Operations of a leading public records research firm), Carol Smith decided it was finally time to fulfill her childhood dream of becoming a librarian. She obtained an MS Information Science and an MS Information Systems from Drexel University in 2006 and moved from Montana to Missouri to kick off her library career. At the University of Central Missouri (2006-2013), Carol served first as a business librarian and then as technology initiatives librarian.

I am a firm believe that an organization is only as strong as its active membership. CoALA is our academic organization, and we can all help shape it!
