We’ll be streaming the ACRL Choice webinar titled “REIMAGINING THE ACADEMIC LIBRARY” on April 21, 2016 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm ET in Bierce 274. Mark your calendar if you are interested in attending- thanks!
Booking study rooms and learning studios in Bierce Library got a much needed upgrade!
Over the summer, Paul and the Access Services staff moved all our student booking of Bierce Library study rooms from the Sierra platform to the LibCal platform. We believe the LibCal platform will be more user-friendly and require less staff time to manage.
At the beginning of this semester, we started moving our mediated booking (Learning Studios) bookings to LibCal as well. As of yesterday, Don will be approving all Learning Studio bookings via LibCal only (thanks Don!). The links on our website have been updated and hopefully you’ll find the experience to be seamless and much simpler.
Stephanie Dawson Everett was recently awarded two significant national scholarships towards the completion of a Masters of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree.
The American Library Association (ALA) selected Stephanie as a 2015-2016 Spectrum Scholar awarding her with a one-year, non-renewable award of $5,000 in scholarship funds and reserving $1,500 for her participation in ALA and the 2016 Annual Conference in Orlando, FL. She was designated as the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Scholar in this year’s Spectrum cohort.
She was also selected as an Association of Research Libraries (ARL) 2015-17 Diversity Scholar. This honor provides a financial award of up to $10,000 towards tuition and expenses to attend the 2016 ARL Leadership Institute Symposium held in Boston. Additional award benefits include a site visit to a sponsored research library, $2,500 for professional development, and a student membership in a professional organization.
Both scholarships seek to increase the number of racially and ethnically diverse professionals in the field of library and information science to best position libraries at the core of today’s culturally diverse communities. Selections were made based on the applicant’s commitment to diversity, commitment to entering the library profession, demonstrated community outreach, academic ability and achievements, and leadership potential.
Stephanie is currently pursuing the Library Management track at Kent State University’s School of Library and Information Science. She expects to complete her MLIS in the fall of 2016.
Frank Bove, Stephanie Everett, Beate Gersch, and Michelle Mascaro recently earned a Certificate in Applied Project Management from UA Solutions, an Advanced Professional Development & Corporate Training Center.
