The Library has named officials to sit on its Bicentennial Steering Committee, which will direct the institution's celebration of its 200th birthday in 2000. A program manager has also been appointed, who will oversee the day-to-day activities of staff throughout the institution who have been assigned tasks in association with the Bicentennial.
Members of the Steering Committee are: Norma Baker, director of development; Jill D. Brett, public affairs officer; Laura Campbell, director of the National Digital Library Program; John Y. Cole, director of the Center for the Book; Jo Ann Jenkins, chief of staff; Geraldine Otremba, director of the Congressional Relations Office; and Winston Tabb, associate librarian for Library Services.
Also, Roberta Stevens, former special assistant to Mr. Tabb, has been named Bicentennial program manager.
"The goal of our Bicentennial is to inspire creativity by stimulating greater use, not only of the Library of Congress, but also of all libraries," said Ms. Jenkins. "Roberta Stevens's extensive experience will give our commemoration a real boost."
