75th Anniversary Scholarship Recipient: Samantha Rich

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.

Rich, SamanthaSamantha Rich is the Assessment and Data Management Librarian at New Mexico State University Library in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

“As a first time attendee, the ACRL Conference was more than I could have ever imagined. I really appreciated that I could take home new ideas that I could actually use/implement at my library. Earning a scholarship meant I could make the most of my professional travel funding and afford to attend an ACRL pre-conference workshop that was extremely relevant to my job. I would not have been able to attend the conference without this scholarship. I am grateful to all those who gave a little extra so that I could attend this conference. I hope that I can attend the ACRL 2017 conference as a presenter.”
