We’ve asked the ACRL 2017 Conference scholarship recipients to describe the impact of attending the ACRL 2017 Conference on their professional life and/or their library.
Heidi Tebbe is a collections and research librarian for engineering and data science at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC.
“I am grateful for the support I received through the ACRL Early Career Librarianship Scholarship program. Attending ACRL 2017 allowed me to connect with colleagues and vendors from around the country and to learn about interesting work being done at other libraries related to topics such as text and data mining, visualization, and collections. I was also able to co-lead a roundtable about citizen science, which was a great opportunity to share ideas and brainstorm about the benefits and potential pitfalls of participating in citizen science activities.”
