ALA 2009 Annual Conference Scholarship for a Day Community
I wanted to post a big 'thank you' to everyone who helped organize this great program and to everyone who helped by volunteering and offering advice to all of us Scholarship-for-a-Day recipients. I had a truly fantastic time at the event. It was an invaluable experience to speak with past Spectrum Scholars and the various speakers from the event. Trevor, Maria, Gwendollyn and Tracy (to name just a very few) have been encouraging and inspiring for those of us with little to no experience in the field.
At the risk of sounding overly effusive, the event had a very familial feel to it and was very welcoming and inspiring. I am looking forward to starting my studies in Library Science and wanted to thank everyone once again for all their support!
I thought I'd post this as a session that might be of interest for those interested in academic librarianship. Also, please see the link to the Making the Most of Your 1st Conference Tipsheet- this might also be useful for all the 1st time attendees (I will not be attending this session- but wanted to put it out there in case some folks were interested).
The Association of College and Research Libraries is pleased to invite you to this year's membership meeting and ACRL 101 session at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago. This interactive session will be held Saturday, July 11, from 8:00-10:00 a.m. in Ballroom IV of the Chicago Sheraton Hotel. A delicious continental breakfast will be provided.
After a brief membership meeting, ACRL member leaders will provide an orientation to ALA, ACRL, and the conference experience. Representatives from all seventeen ACRL sections will be available to answer questions and welcome you.
