Alumni Reflections: Community

“The Fellowship was an amazing experience and gave me important insight into how an academic library functions, how to address the needs of both the institution and more importantly, the audience it serves. The support from other fellows and librarians was as important as the skills I learned.” - 2016 Fellow

“Knowing that I always had support was so valuable. Whether it was applying to a job, or improving an instruction session that didn’t go well, I could always email someone, come into the office and talk. That helped me to grow. “ - 2016 Fellow
