ALA Taps New Strategic Advisors

Jon Peha and Sari Feldman became senior fellows of ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP). They are tasked with providing “strategic advice on our national policy advocacy,” according to Alan Inouye, OITP’s director.

Peha is a professor at Carnegie Mellon University and former chief technologist of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). He was also assistant director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. “Peha will provide ALA with counsel on the broad range of telecommunications issues from net neutrality and network engineering to spectrum and universal service,” Inouye writes.

Feldman is the executive director of the Cuyahoga County Public Library in Ohio and is a past president of ALA and the Public Library Association (PLA). She was co-chair of the ALA Digital Content Working Group. According to Inouye, “Feldman will provide guidance on e-book and digital content issues as well as library broadband policy and implementation.”
