MSLS Student, Jane Steele, Wins SEAALL Scholarship

November 11, 2011

Jane Steele Jane Steele, a graduate student at SILS, is the recipient of a $1,000 Student Scholarship award from the Southeastern Chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries (SEAALL). 

Steele, a second-year MSLS student, received the scholarship and a complimentary membership to SEAALL “in the hope that this will assist [her] progress” at SILS. In return, she will write an article for SEAALL’s periodical, the Southeastern Law Librarian, about a topic pertaining to law librarianship.  

"I am very honored to have been selected to receive this scholarship award from SEAALL," Steele said. "Though I came to SILS with a law degree and a goal to pursue law librarianship, the education I have received as a student here has been invaluable to my success outside the classroom. My courses in Law Librarianship, Government Documents, Reference and Management especially prepared me for my field experience in the Goodson Law Library at Duke University School of Law, where I have continued to work in the Reference Department since completing my required hours."

"Receiving this scholarship in recognition of my past and present achievements is a testament to both my own ambition and passion for the field of librarianship, as well as the excellent education and opportunities I have received at SILS to that have allowed me to pursue my dream."
