Terri Hatfield and Erin Reardon are the recipients of the 2017 Legacy Scholarship. Both are students in the Master of Library and Information Science program at Valdosta State University.
Terri currently works in an academic department at the University of Georgia. Having a “nearly lifelong, personal curiosity in evidence-based medicine and complementary and integrative medicine,” Terri has focused many of her course projects on health sciences librarianship, and she looks forward to working in an environment where she can impact patients, family members, and clinicians by meeting their information needs.
Erin is currently doing fieldwork at Mercer University’s Monroe F. Swilley, Jr., Library. Through her research and work in an academic health sciences library setting, Erin has developed an interest in “educating future clinicians in the use of the resources available to them” and looks forward to learning more about partnering with faculty and clinicians in the CE course “Building Partnerships with Faculty, Clinicians and Other Stakeholders.”
