Diversity Scholar Natalia Estrada

Natalia Estrada, Reference & Collections Assistant in the Social Sciences Division, has been selected from a very large number of applicants as an ARL Diversity Scholar. This prestigious award from the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is part of their Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce which was established in 2000 to attract students from historically underrepresented groups to careers in academic and research libraries. As a Diversity Scholar, Natalia will attend the ARL Leadership Symposium in January, be sent on a visit to another ARL library in 2019, work with an ARL-assigned mentor, and participate in an online community of ARL Scholars. She will also receive a tuition stipend to complete her Masters of Library and Information Studies (MLIS).

Contratulations, Natalia!
