75th Anniversary Scholarship Recipient: Silvia Vong

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.

Silvia Vong is the Collaborative Learning Librarian at St. Michael’s College in Toronto, Ontario.

“As an early career librarian I struggled with finding a research area related to information literacy that fit my interests.  I attended a variety of ACRL sessions and stumbled upon sessions about scholarly communication and information literacy.  My curiosity on the subject was instantly piqued!  I came back energized, inspired and ready to explore the topic further.  I’ve since planned events to teach undergraduate students about IL (based on the new Framework) and scholarly communication!”
