The Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI) is pleased to announce that Victoria Turner, Cataloging Assistant at Harper College Library in Palatine, has been selected to receive the CARLI Scholarship. CARLI is awarding this scholarship for the first time for the 2020/2021 academic year.

“My first semester at the iSchool at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has already enriched my knowledge and furthered my enthusiasm of libraries and librarianship,” Turner said. “I am both thankful and humbled by the generosity of the CARLI scholarship donors. Knowing that I have the support of the CARLI family cheering me on inspires me as I continue my studies of information organization and metadata standards and practices.”

Turner was selected based on her response to a personal essay question regarding her professional goals and objectives in pursuing a library career that demonstrates a commitment to the profession and the strength of her references.

“We are thrilled to award this scholarship for the first time in our history, and so pleased to be able to help support the education of one of the dedicated staff of our CARLI libraries,” said CARLI Senior Director Anne Craig. “I am grateful to the Scholarship Fund donors who have so generously supported this important new program, helping CARLI to grow the profession.”

The CARLI Scholarship provides financial assistance to current employees of CARLI Governing Member Libraries pursuing graduate studies leading to a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. CARLI established the scholarship in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of resource sharing by CARLI and its predecessor organizations. The scholarship is funded by donations.

Registration is now open for the CARLI Instruction Committee sponsored webinar: “ACT UP: Evaluating Sources and Pushing Against Privilege”, on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CDT.

In this webinar, Dawn Stahura discusses her evaluation method called ACT UP, which goes beyond standard evaluation methods like CRAAP. Because source evaluation is social justice work, it is critical we teach students how to push against privilege in publishing as well as identifying misinformation before sharing it with others. More background information for the webinar is available here.

To register, visit here. This webinar will be recorded and posted to the CARLI website.

Please send any questions to support@carli.illinois.edu.

Several of the presentations will be recorded however, the entire day will NOT be streamed/recorded since there will be guided small group discussion among attendees. Registration is required for both options.

Initially in-person registration is limited to two people per institution. If space remains after March 12, registration will open to all interested CARLI members.

Please contact CARLI Support, at support@carli.illinois.edu, with any questions.
