75th Anniversary Scholarship Recipient: Paul Clayton Campbell

As part of the celebration of ACRL’s 75th Anniversary, we’ve asked the ACRL 75th Anniversary scholarship recipients to describe the impact of attending the ACRL 2015 Conference on their professional life and/or their library.

“I am not sure if I can tell you all of the ways attending ACRL 2015 has benefited me. But I’ll try . . .

  1. I got to meet my intellectual idol, Steven Bell. I am certain I weirded him out a little but I’m happy to have been able to meet him.
    2. I just got a publication as a direct result of the conference. Please take a look at it here –  https://alaoinstructionig.wordpress.com/2015/07/31/the-dark-german-forest-of-library-instruction/.
    3. I was able to meet up with some of my colleagues from across the country and we had an incredible time together.
    4. I have transformed my library instruction curriculum to include some of what Lawrence Lessig was talked about with regard to information privilege.”
