Sheryl B. Vogt, director of the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies at the University of Georgia Libraries, has been elected to a two-year term (2009-2011) as president of the Association of Centers for the Study of Congress.
Founded in 2003 as an independent alliance of organizations and institutions, the ACSC supports a wide range of programs designed to inform and educate students, scholars, policy-makers, and members of the general public on the history of Congress, legislative process, and current issues facing Congress. The ACSC encourages the preservation of material that documents the work of Congress, including the papers of representatives and senators, and supports programs that make those materials available for educational and research use. Many of the association’s member institutions house archival collections of the papers of current and former members of the House of Representatives, the Senate, and other related research collections. Among its holdings, the Russell Library has over 40 congressional collections.
