SC&I Faculty to Present at New Jersey Librarian Association Annual Conference in Atlantic City on June 1–3
SC&I is proud to be an NJLA platinum sponsor.

Faculty, students, and alumni from SC&I’s Library and Information Science (LIS) Department will attend the annual New Jersey Librarian Association (NJLA) Conference, the premier professional development event for the state’s library community. This year’s conference returns to an in-person format and will be held at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City on June 1–3. The conference theme is “Embracing Opportunity,” focusing on unity.

“SC&I is honored to be a Platinum Sponsor for NJLA once again,” said LIS Professor and Department Chair Marie L. Radford. “We are proud of our MI/MLIS alumni, many of whom enjoy leadership positions within NJLA. It’s wonderful to gather with alumni, faculty, and current students to celebrate our shared interest and support for New Jersey’s libraries. This year’s theme of embracing opportunity resonates deeply with all of us.”  Radford will be introducing one of the keynotes as part of our NJLA sponsorship.

The NJLA Conference features special events, vendor meetings, and poster sessions. On June 1, conference attendees will commemorate the life of Ross J. Todd, a beloved associate professor of Library and Information Science at SC&I who died on March 30, 2022. Todd was a world-renowned expert on adolescent information seeking and the use of inquiry learning in digital information environments and the transformative role of school libraries in the 21st century. A conversation between award-winning author Imbolo Mbue and 2021 NJLA Librarian of the Year Keisha Miller will close the conference.

NJLA, the state’s oldest and largest library organization, advocates for the advancement of library services, provides continuing education and networking opportunities for librarians and supports the principles of intellectual freedom and access to library materials for all.
