Weeks 10 & 11
ASB: Gslis in Puerto Rico!
So I did not go in this Friday/Saturday (Friday was my birthday and Saturday was closed for AFI Campus Spring Break) but now I am 30 years old and have great school news to share today!
I am to receive the C. Berger Group Entrepreneurial Promise Award at GSLIS Graduation next month!
This award is given to a student who exhibits unusual creativity, reflects an innovative spirit and shows the most promise for an outstanding career in a special library, non-traditional library setting or as an entrepreneur. Sponsor of the award is C. Berger Group, Inc., Carol Stream, IL.
So honored :D!!!!
Today I graduated with my Master of Science in Library Information Science & Received the Entrepreneurial Promise Award!
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

promise for an outstanding career in a special library, non-traditional library setting or as an entrepreneur. The award is
sponsored by the Graduate School of Library and Information Science.”
Ziba pursued the MS via LEEP from California. Even though she was physically distant from Illinois, she was consistently engaged with the School through varied media and activities—including participating in the first GSLIS student exchange program to Puerto Rico. Our community has benefited greatly from Ziba’s expert communication and contagious enthusiasm. We look forward to seeing her continue to make a positive impact in future endeavors.
