SLIS star Williams ('09) continues to shine

SLIS alumna Ginger Williams (MSLIS, ‘09), a reference librarian at Valdosta State University, received a promotion to assistant professor. In recognition of her accomplishments as an instructor during the past three years, she was also awarded credit toward tenure.

Williams’ specialization at the university’s Odum Library is also changing—from coordinating the embedded librarian program to assessing library systems and services.

In April, Williams will be presenting at the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACLR) 2013 conference with fellow SLIS alumni Michelle Demeter and Karen Doster. Williams has published articles in Georgia Library Quarterly (2011) and Palmetto Practitioner (2013).

While at FSU in 2009, Williams won a full scholarship to attend the ACLR’s Rare Books and Manuscripts Section Preconference in Virginia. She was president of the ALA Student Chapter that year and received a graduate research assistantship in Special Collections at Strozier Library. Williams spent her final six months of MLIS study as an intern at the FSU London Study Centre library.
