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.
Twanna Hodge is an information literacy and collection development librarian at the University of the Virgin Islands in Saint Thomas, US Virgin Islands.
“The ACRL 2017 Conference in Baltimore provided a wonderful event to connect with experts in a variety of specializations and access to a wealth of information on topics such as open access, collection development, information literacy and more. Conference attendance further allowed me to host a roundtable along with my colleagues from other universities along with being an ACRL buddy for a new librarian. I returned home rejuvenated and with more ideas, information, connections and energy than ever before in my capacity as the Information Literacy and Collection Development Librarian.
Thank you for your support. Being from the USVI makes it challenging to attend conferences on the mainland.”
