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.
Rhia Rae is a digital archivist at Florida International University in Miami, FL.
“Attending ACRL opened my eyes to the current environment in the library and how I can advocate for our profession and our rights. The keynote speakers were inspiring and provided insight to how others are navigating our changing profession. Networking with ACRL conference attendees offered fresh ideas and future collaboration opportunities. I am grateful to be a ACRL 2017 scholarship recipient and appreciate that ACRL extends the opportunity to library staff and students to participate in the conference. I look forward to participating in ACRL 2019.”
