What Members Are Saying About ACRL Oregon

Robin Paynter (OHSU, Oregon Evidence-based Practice Center) writes:

“I have had a number of wonderful ‘aha’ moments at fall conferences and made some great connections with fellow members over the many years I have been a member and part of the Board.  Too many in fact to do justice to here, so I will focus on one such event since it ultimately led to my current professional position!  I met Janet Tapper (Western States University) when we served on the ACRL Oregon Board together – eventually we co-presented at OLA Annual Conference on evidence-based practice, which later led to my publishing an article on my part of the presentation. Janet also provided the knowing nudge that led to my applying for my current position at the Oregon Evidence-based Practice Center, when she saw my resolve flagging under uncertainty about whether they would ever hire a social sciences librarian (“let them decide whether you qualify for the position, don’t pre-emptively decide yourself!”). A thousand thanks Janet (!), and ACRL Oregon for providing useful content, venues to develop professionally, and networking opportunities – it has made a huge difference in my professional career.”
