75th Anniversary Scholarship Recipient: Jeff D. Corrigan

As part of the celebration of ACRL’s 75th Anniversary, we’ve asked the ACRL 75th Anniversary scholarship recipients to describe the impact of attending the ACRL 2015 Conference on their professional life and/or their library.

Corrigan, JeffJeff D. Corrigan is a graduate student at the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies at The University of Missouri in Columbia.

“After thanking both of the ACRL donors whose names I was given, I surprisingly received a reply back from one of them who was elated with my thank-you note. After that, she even sent me a copy of a document she thought I would be very interested in after hearing about my interests, which was a big surprise to me! Although I learned a lot at ACRL, one of the most pleasant surprises to me has been the correspondence I have had with one of the ACRL donors who contributed to the ACRL scholarships! My whole introduction and experience this past year with ACRL has been great and I could not have done it without the scholarship!”
