We are pleased to announce that Rachel Williams, of Simmons University, as the recipient of this year’s NE-ASIST Annual Travel Award.
Rachel anticipates that attending the annual meeting will assist in “building my professional network, in reflecting and growing as an instructor, and in engaging the innovative approaches to answering information questions.” Her work on exploring the possible connections between social work, public librarianship, and library science education directly engages with the conference theme. Her experience and interest in forging ties between research and practice resonate with NEASIST’s work.
A special thanks goes out to the team of volunteers who read through the essays for this year’s award – Alyson Gamble, Grete Graf, Joshua Dull, Kyong Eun Oh, and Louisa Choy. Additional thanks to Rachael Juskuv for providing further guidance.
