75th Anniversary Scholarship Recipient: Jungwon Yang

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.

Jungwon Yang is the International Government Information and Public Policy Librarian at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

“Attending the ACRL 2015 provided me great opportunities to learn about digital humanities projects which other academic libraries pursued. As an international government information librarian, ACRL 2015 was also a great place to meet vendors who provide international government information and data. For example, at the conference I found up-to-date information about the United Nations Digital Library, the new international survey data sets in the iPoll, and the open access movements of the OECD iLibrary and IMF eLibrary data. All this information is a great help in developing the collection management plans for the University of Michigan libraries. I really appreciate ACRL for helping me to attend the conference, and to provide access to this valuable information.”
