From Catherine Lavallée-Welch:
The Academic Division is very happy and honored to co-sponsor with SLA Europe one of the 2014 Early Career Conference Awards (ECCA). Our awardee, Michelle Bond, is a trainee faculty librarian at Liverpool Hope University with interests in information literacy teaching, reading and the use of social media in higher education. A recent graduate of the iSchool at the University of Sheffield, Michelle wrote her dissertation on recreational reading in academic libraries.
Michelle will travel the 2014 SLA Annual Conference in Vancouver, BC. She will be attending Division sessions like our Academic Roundtable, the Business & Awards Meeting and the Board Meeting. She will also share her conference experience in a publication on our website. Please join us in extending a warm welcome to the Academic Division to Michelle and we hope you will have the opportunity to meet and exchange with her, in person or virtually.
