Sarah Hume Awarded SLA Early Career Conference Award

By Anne Welsh, on 2 April 2015

SarahHumeCongratulations to Sarah Hume on being awarded an Early Career Conference Award by the Special Libraries Association Europe.

Sarah is completing her MA LIS part-time while working as a Library Assistant at the Geological Society of London and the London Library, and is active in student life, at UCL, where she is helping to organise our upcoming employers fora, nationally, as Chair of Cilip’s Student Committee, and internationally, as a contributor to Hack Library School.

ECCA are highly sought-after, providing accommodation, travel and registration for the SLA annual conference. UCL’s last ECCA holder was Marie Cannon, who now works for a leading international law firm and is a well-respected conference speaker. Sarah’s award is the first to be co-sponsored by the Competitive Intelligence Division – an area of library practice that is of particular interest to Sarah – and she is looking forward to finding out more about it, and meeting practitioners from Europe and beyond.
