Sue Edgar Enjoys Meeting Winners of the SLA Europe Student Conference Award 2008
It was great to go to the SLA conference last week in Seattle to speak at a session on working globally.
While there I also met with the winners of the SLA Europe Student Conference Award Emma Dhesi (Brighton University), Sarah Hammond (University of Sheffield), Hanna Lewin (University College London), and Sandy Peterson (University of Strathclyde, Glasgow). The award, now in its second year, is made to European students enrolled in a graduate-level programme in the field of library and information science, who have excellent English language skills and have never attended the SLA Conference. Sue Hill Recruitment is one of the sponsors of the award.
Hannah greatly enjoyed the conference, "The opportunity was something I really made full use of, making contacts and becoming more informed for when I graduate. So thank you for supporting new entrants to the profession in this way, it really is fantastic."
