75th Anniversary Scholarship Recipient: Kimberly Miller

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.

Miller, KimberlyKimberly Miller is the Learning Technologies Librarian and Liaison to Psychology at Towson University in Towson, Maryland.

“Scholarship funding for ACRL 2015 was critical to my attendance. Our library was experiencing a travel spending freeze at the time my ACRL roundtable proposal was accepted, and receiving the scholarship made traveling across the country much more affordable.

Although I’ve implemented several new ideas at my library as a result of my ACRL experience, the biggest impact has been on my own personal scholarship. A journal editor noticed that my roundtable topic was a good fit for their journal, contacted me about submitting an article, and I just recently submitted revisions for the article after its initial peer review. This connection might have been much more difficult to make without attending the conference and the support of the Early Career Librarian Scholarship.

Thanks for all of your work on behalf of ACRL and its members!”
