Swets is proud to announce Margaret Medina as the winner of our $1,000 scholarship to attend the 2013 Charleston Conference. Medina is the Library Technician III of Monographs Section at Colorado State University.

Medina’s essay, which explored the reality of the new library mantra “doing less with less” was a honest and insightful look at how her library is navigating workflows in the face of less budget dollars and less staff. The panel of judges praised Medina’s winning essay as a dead on characterization of issues librarians are facing today. The essay will be expanded upon and featured in an upcoming edition of Against The Grain.

Medina is thrilled at the opportunity to partake in the Charleston Conference this year – it will be her first time attending. She explains, “I am honored and excited to win the Swets scholarship to the 2013 Charleston Conference. There are so many topics being explored in the sessions offered that make this a wonderful opportunity!”

“I can speak for the entire Swets Charleston Scholarship committee when I say that we were extremely impressed with Margaret’s essay,” stated Kristin McNally, Marketing Manager at Swets. “Every year we look forward to sending a deserving librarian to the conference for such an incredible opportunity to learn and grow with their colleagues and I’m so excited that Swets is able to provide Margaret with this experience.”

The Swets Charleston Scholarship committee is comprised of College of Charleston’s Head of Collection Development and Founder of the Charleston Conference, Katina Strauch, Chuck Hamaker, Associate University Librarian for Collections and Technical Services at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte and Kristin McNally, Marketing Manager at Swets.

Swets will participate in the Vendor Showcase at this year’s conference on Wednesday, November 6th from 10:30am-6:00pm at table #25. To request a meeting with Swets at the conference please contact [email protected]
