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.
Therese Triumph is a science librarian at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Chapel Hill, NC.
“Thank you ACRL board members for affording me the opportunity to attend and participate in the 2017 ACRL Conference, At the Helm, by awarding me the Early-Career Librarian Scholarship. Attending the conference, allowed me to participate in the poster session and tell librarians about the importance of building a community of “makers” through art and science (poster, “Science + Art = Community: Engaging Patrons Through Making”). But most importantly, listening and meeting Carla Hayden was the highlight of the conference!”
