With an incredibly successful first year under our belts, we were excited to connect with even more early career librarians. We were once again overwhelmed by your scholarship, insight, and creativity. After carefully reviewing all of your applications, it is my pleasure to congratulate Ximin Mi, Heather Howard, and Lauren Connolly, the 2016 winners of the Wiley Scholarship for Early Career Librarians.
Ximin Mi is a Business Data Services Librarian at Georgia State University. You can view Ximin’s video here. She will be attending ALA Midwinter in January.
Heather Howard is an Assistant Professor of Library Science and a Business Information Specialist at Purdue University. You can view Heather’s video here. She will be attending ACRL in March.
Lauren Connolly is an Online Services Librarian at the University of Findlay. You can view Lauren's video here. She will also be attending ACRL in March.
Congratulations to our winners, and thank you to everyone who applied. We’d also like to thank the library community as a whole. A full 64% of our applicants reported hearing about this opportunity from another librarian. Thanks for spreading the word!
