In Loving Memory of Lisa Zhao

Description

Zhao, Lisa (赵力沙) 02/15/1950 - 03/22/2016 Chicago IL -- In recognizing the passing of Lisa Zhao, the Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA) wants to celebrate the character of this distinguished and dedicated CALA member. Lisa was the Catalog Librarian (1990 - 2015) in University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and CALA President (2013-2014). She passed away on March 22, 2016 after her battle with cancer. Lisa joined CALA in 1996 and was CALA President (2013-2014). For the past 20 years, she took upon a wide range of capacities from being committee chairs to chapter president and from board member to CALA president. She passionately and wholeheartedly carried out her responsibilities and contributed a great deal to the advancement of CALA and to the library community and beyond. She was one of the five members who initiated CALA’s 21 Century Seminars providing professional development opportunities for members. Lisa was a positive, brave and passionate member and officer of CALA and she cared members and friends more than herself. She set a high standard for herself as a CALA President. At numerous occasions when CALA was in critical moments and facing challenges, Lisa stood firm on her ground, fighting for the goodness of the organization and the benefit of the members. Lisa will be missed dearly: her smile, commitment and devotion to, as well as strength and passion for CALA and librarianship, will be remembered for a long time to come!
