Jennifer Brannock, professor and curator of Rare Books & Mississippiana at The University of Southern Mississippi (USM), was recently elected to serve a three-year term on the Local History and Genealogy Committee of the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA) and Institutions.
Brannock represents the Reference and User Services Association, a division of the American Library Association. In this role, she will assist with programming, promotion, and awareness of issues that impact local history and genealogical collections directed at a global audience.
“Ever since I was in graduate school, I’ve wanted to serve in IFLA,” Brannock said. “It’s great to be able to make a difference worldwide.”
Brannock holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Kentucky. She joined the faculty of USM University Libraries in 2004 after serving as a project coordinator with the Yale University Art & Architecture Library, where she was also a Kress Fellow in Art Librarianship.
