HARRASSOWITZ Charleston Conference Scholarship Winner

HARRASSOWITZ Announces 2018 Charleston Conference Scholarship Winner

Wiesbaden, Germany  ()

HARRASSOWITZ, international booksellers and subscription agents, is pleased to award the 2018 Charleston Conference Scholarship to Sara Huber, Acquisitions Librarian at University of Oklahoma. Ms. Huber was awarded the $1,000 scholarship to attend the conference, which takes place November 5-9, 2018 in Charleston, South Carolina.

In support of the 2018 conference theme of "Oh Wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?", applicants for this year's scholarship were asked to submit a short essay on the topic "What does ‘Oh Wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind' mean to libraries and vendors?"

In her winning essay, Ms. Huber notes that:

Just like nature finds a way to adapt to the changing seasons, preparing for the next unknown, libraries can also do the same and ensure that their relationships with vendors do not suffer as we work together to increase usage and provide library patrons with valuable resources. These "winter storms" are times during which we can still strengthen our relationships with one another through established common goals and a shared vision.

"The Charleston Conference," she concludes, "is the ideal venue at which to create the types of lasting relationships that can withstand the winter storms that give way to spring."

Judging the submissions were Sarah Forzetting, Ordering & Fiscal Librarian, Stanford University; Trey Shelton, E-Resources Librarian, University of Florida; and Justin Clarke, HARRASSOWITZ's Director of Sales and Marketing for North America.

"The objective of the scholarship is to provide a travel scholarship to someone who has never attended the Charleston Conference", Justin Clarke said. "HARRASSOWITZ congratulates Ms. Huber to her winning essay and hopes that she will find the Conference experience rewarding."

The complete essay can be viewed here.
