June 13, 2016

Nahali (Holly) Croft (MSLS ’16), a recent graduate of the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS), has received a scholarship to attend the 57th Annual ACRL Rare Books & Manuscripts Section conference, “Opening Doors to Collaboration, Outreach and Diversity,” which will take place June 21–24, in Coral Gables, Fla.  The scholarship covers registration and lodging and provides $400 for travel and other expenses.

As a SILS student, Croft interned at the Campbell University Archive and the North Carolina Collection Gallery in the Louis Round Wilson Special Collection Library. She hopes to end up working in a political collection as a digital archivist or an outreach archivist.

Earlier this year, Croft received a scholarship to attend the Managing Electronic Records (MER) Conference in Chicago, May 23-25. She also won the Society of North Carolina Archivists (SNCA) Gene J. Williams Award, which is given annually to recognize the best paper on an archival topic written for a graduate-level course by a North Carolina student.
