*Spring 2021 ACRL-Oregon Professional Development Scholarships* have been
awarded to Tracy Scharn and Marci Ramiro-Jenkins.

Tracy Scharn, who works as an Instruction and Outreach Librarian at the Oregon
Institute of Technology, used her scholarship to attend the ACRL National
Conference. Recently having started a new position at OIT, Scharn is
looking forward to strengthening her skills in instruction, as well as
learning new strategies around outreach, assessment, and diversity, equity
and inclusion (DEI).

Marci Ramiro-Jenkins works as a Reference Librarian/Latino Community
Liaison at McMinnville Public Library, as well as chairing the Oregon
Library Association’s EDI Anti Racism Committee. She will be using this
scholarship to help fund her online certification in Diversity & Inclusion
from Cornell University. As Ramiro-Jenkins points out, we lack “specialized
professionals on EDI and Antiracism… I believe having at least one
librarian collaborating with OLA and The State Library of Oregon, who
possess the right set of credentials, will foster the creation of new
initiatives on EDI and Antiracism for the whole library community.”

The ACRL-Oregon Professional Development Scholarship

designed to allow ACRL-OR members the chance to apply for awards to attend
conferences, workshops, courses, seminars, or other learning opportunities
multiple times throughout the year. You can learn more about the many
scholarship opportunities we provide on the ACRL-OR Scholarships page
