What do you value about ACRL?
As a long-time member, I appreciate the resources and learning opportunities ACRL has provided to keep me up-to-date with trends and changes in the field. I also deeply value the networking opportunities and connections I’ve made with other librarians.
What do you as an academic librarian contribute to your campus?
I am very fortunate that my role as a Distance Learning Librarian allows me to contribute to my campus in multiple ways. I teach, coordinate an Embedded Librarian program, help create and maintain our information literacy learning objects and resources, and serve on many institutional committees that strive to create a more equitable and inclusive campus for our students. I really enjoy working with so many different individuals from all areas of the college.
