Iffat Ahmad has worked at the University Library since 1993 and has loved every moment of it. Working in a variety of positions in various branches has allowed her to learn a great deal about the library system and develop her skills. Iffat states that she applied for the Marjorie Clelland scholarship “because the ideas and knowledge I will bring back from the sessions I attend will ensure that as an employee, I will be adaptable to new ways of thinking and working. This, in turn, will benefit our clients, both external and internal, in that we can provide them with the tools required for them to excel academically and professionally.” Iffat will be using her scholarship award to attend the 7th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference (http://eblip7.library.usask.ca).
Beth Matheson is a library assistant at the Sciences Library. When asked about her application for the Marjorie Clelland Scholarship Beth said: “As a person in my prime during a major revolution in human history I feel a bit like I am always playing catch up with ‘current trends’. They are no sooner reported than they are out of date. Yet there is nothing to do but keep informed and try to see where things are going. I see much at the Alberta Library Conference 2013 to help me in my personal life as an author/illustrator/publisher toward understanding where information and storytelling are headed. And as a library assistant it can do nothing but good for me to work toward getting ahead of the curve. Even if I never quite make it.” Beth will be using her scholarship to attend the Alberta Library Conference (http://albertalibraryconference.com).
