Professional Development

Some experiences are hard to reflect on a resume- here are the ones I’ve learned the most from!

I have:

  • Attended the 2013 ACRL Washington and Oregon joint conference “Tak­ing Care: Our­selves, Our Users, Our Col­lec­tions” as the student conference scholarship recipient. I attended sessions on understanding student development and how we can apply development theory to library work as well as collection development concerns and best practices from a community college perspective. Lightening talks included discussions on creating safe spaces within our libraries and how to collaborate with other librarians on professional research.
  • Participated in University of Washington Libraries Reference Boot Camp and Learning Spaces Unconference as part of my training as a Graduate Reference and Instruction Assistant.
  • Volunteered with the Internet Public Library to answer incoming reference questions.
  • Observed Special Collections instruction sessions delivered to a variety of student and other stakeholder groups.
  • Attended ALA Mid-Winter 2013 meeting, where I participated actively in various ACRL and New Member Round Table (NMRT) events.
