EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) is pleased to announce that Acquisitions Librarian Jamie Wilson, from Millsaps-Wilson Library of Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss., is the winner of the 2013 EBSCO Charleston Conference Scholarship. Ms. Wilson will use the scholarship to attend the 33rd Annual Charleston Conference, which will take place in Charleston, S.C. from Nov. 6-9.
In keeping with the conference’s theme of, “Too Much is Not Enough,” scholarship applicants were asked to submit a short essay addressing how to maximize the abundance of information resources to meet the user needs in a time of finite financial resources. Ms. Wilson’s essay focused on serving users more effectively with methods that come from an investment of time and willingness to adapt. Communication, cross training and utilization of evaluation and discovery tools were among the points discussed to help librarians provide a better experience for the user with minimal budget impact.
