Jane Marshall Bursary Winner- Report from ARLG Conference
For the ARLG Conference 2019 the inaugural Jane Marshall Bursary was available to a librarian or information professional working in a North West FE, HE or research library.
The bursary, in memory of Jane, recognises her dedication and commitment to CILIP Academic and Research Libraries Group, especially her role within the North West ARLG. Jane held a number of committee roles, including Web Officer and Secretary, and represented the North West at national meetings as well as serving on the National Committee. The bursary marks her valued contribution and aims to inspire and encourage others.
The worthy winner of the bursary was Allyson Watts, College Librarian at Wigan and Leigh College. Allyson said of the conference “as a newcomer to academic libraries being given a chance to meet up with others in the same field; to network and exchange practices and ideas was what appealed to me”, it was “an invaluable experience that I have learnt so much from.”
