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.
Margaret N. Lam is a physical sciences & STEM data librarian at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA.
“The 2017 ACRL Conference was definitely a special one for me. I’ve attended ACRL since 2011, and this is by far, the one that I had the most fun learning from everyone I met and saw there. In addition, having the opportunity to see the Librarian of Congress, Carla Hayden, speak was absolutely spectacular and awe-inspiring. She made me feel that I do make a difference, and that I need to continue the work that I do because it is important. I left Baltimore, MD, with such an inspirational high that Saturday afternoon. So thank you for providing me this wonderful experience!”
