Dani Brecher, a graduate student at UNC at Chapel Hill’s School of Information and Library Science (SILS) has received one of two LOEX Minority Scholarships. The award is given to a student “who is a member of an under-represented minority group and/or has done significant work to bring library services or information literacy opportunities to minorities” according to the LOEX Web site. As the winner of this scholarship, Brecher will receive a paid registration to the LOEX 2013 Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, as well as a $250 stipend for travel and lodging.
Brecher and fellow SILS graduate student Megan Slemons also had a poster accepted for the LOEX poster session. The poster is titled, “Building a Better Subject Guide: Tools for Creating Standards and Increasing Usage.” It will be presented on the second day of the LOEX Conference, which will take place in early May.
Congratulations to Brecher and Slemons for their honors.
