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.
Sveta Stoytcheva is a humanities librarian at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa in Honolulu, HI.
“Without a scholarship, I would not have been able to attend ACRL 2017 in Baltimore. Attending the Conference was important to me for several reasons and I am very grateful for the opportunity. As an early career librarian, the chance to reconnect with mentors in person and reflect on the first couple years of my career was incredibly valuable. Additionally, I was able to present at ACRL with a colleague from my institution and our presentation has led to additional opportunities to share our work and contribute to the professional discussion about instruction. ACRL is a wonderful chance to connect with other librarians and more individuals should have an opportunity to participate without financial barriers.”
