Rebecca Troy-Horton (f/k/a Rebecca Blakeley) is head of the Government Information Department at the McNeese State University Library in Lake Charles, Louisiana. She was selected to be a 2008 American Library Association Emerging Leader and a Library Journal Mover & Shaker in 2009.
Prior to McNeese, Rebecca worked in the Reference and Government Publications departments at the University of Rhode Island and also taught courses on Information Literacy. She received her M.L.I.S. in 2005 and her B.A. in Anthropology in 2003, both from the University of Rhode Island. Rebecca fell in love with Government Documents when she took an online course with Daniel O'Mahony, whose passion for "Documents to the People" inspired her to become a documents librarian. Rebecca is a techie wannabee and is neither Gen X nor Gen Y but somewhere in between. Feel free to visit her department's blog, Gov Docs on the Bayou.
