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.
Judith Schwartz is an assistant professor and reference and resource sharing librarian at Medgar Evers College, the City University of New York in Brooklyn, NY.
“The ACRL Early-Career Librarian Scholarship enabled me to attend my first ACRL conference. I was particularly interested in the poster sessions, attended workshops, and vendor luncheons. It was great to hear about new up-and-coming products relevant to my position. The keynote speakers were excellent; I am a big David McCandless fan and was enamored with Roxane Gay and Carla Hayden. ACRL did a great job getting scholarship recipients together for networking events; I met librarians from around the world. Thank you ACRL for the opportunity to be there!”
