     Index Term: Jane Caulton appointed head of the Publications and Media
     Section
     
     
     Jane Caulton, a longtime NLS staff member, has been appointed head of the Publications
     and Media Section (PMS). She will be responsible for planning and implementing NLS's
     publishing and public awareness programs. Caulton has served in many roles both at NLS
     and at the Library of Congress (LC).
     
     Ms. Caulton began her career with PMS as a writer-editor in 1989. She coordinated the
     national exhibit campaign, and later, other major NLS public outreach projects, including
     the Take a Talking Book multimedia outreach campaign and the Rita Moreno talking-
     book public service announcement series. She has served as editor of the bimonthly
     patron magazine Braille Book Review and of the quarterly volunteer newsletter Update.
     In 2003, she was promoted to senior writer-editor, responsible for the section's work
     flow.  A year later, she was promoted to assistant head of the Publications and Media
     Section, where she oversaw the publishing operation and assisted with implementing
     public outreach goals.
     
     In 2000, Jane Caulton was commended by the Librarian of Congress for her work from
     January 1999 to July 2000 as project coordinator of the LC bicentennial preservation and
     security symposium, "To Preserve and Protect: Strategic Stewardship and Cultural
     Resources," a national conference for directors of libraries, archives, and museums.
     Almost concurrently, she was selected as a future leader of the Library in October 1999,
     completing its Leadership Development Program in October 2000. During her year in the
     program, she served in the LC Congressional Relations Office helping to develop
     research materials, write reports, and facilitate communication between the Library and
     the U.S. Congress, among other assignments.
     
     She holds a BS in political science from Central State University, Wilberforce, Ohio, and
     is currently enrolled at the graduate level in the Johns Hopkins University Leadership
     Development Program. 
     
     Ms. Caulton has received frequent recognition for service and achievement, including LC
     awards for Meritorious Service and Special Achievement, the Prince George's County
     (Maryland) Commission for Women Certificate of Appreciation for Volunteer Service,
     and the North American Precis Certificate of Excellence for Achievement in Media
     Relations.
     
     Jane Caulton is committed to the goals of maintaining the high standards of the
     Publications and Media Section and increasing public awareness of the talking-book
     program.
