75th Anniversary Scholarship Recipient: Ashley Cole

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.

Ashley Cole is the Reference & Instruction Librarian at Eastern Kentucky University Libraries in Richmond, Kentucky.

“I’d like to note that the Early-career Librarian Scholarship allowed me to attend my first ever ACRL conference. While overwhelming, I found that it was a wonderful learning experience, if only for the opportunity to interact with librarians from universities nationwide. Of the numerous attended sessions, I have been able to bring back ideas for programs, services, and instruction to better serve our students.

Thank you again for the opportunity to attend ACRL 2015. It was a joy to be a part of such a wonderful organization.”
