Meet the 2017 SALALM Conference Scholarship Winners: Mark Sandoval

Mark Sandoval

Mark Sandoval is completing his Master of Arts in Library and Information Science from the University of Arizona. As a member of Knowledge River, he is committed to serving and advocating for the information needs of Latino, Native American, and other minority groups.

Mark is from Lebanon, TN, and graduated in May 2016 from Centre College in Danville, KY, with a B.A. in anthropology/sociology and a minor in Spanish. He studied at the Universidad Marista de Mérida in Mexico for one semester in 2015 and took a month-long course in Argentina in 2016. He served on Centre College’s Library Advisory Committee throughout his undergraduate years.

He has been working as a graduate assistant at the University of Arizona Special Collections Library since August 2016. He has processed a collection on the vaudevillian and composer Joseph E. Howard; completed some research for the current exhibit, Visions of the Borderlands: Myths and Realities; and has worked on digitizing a photograph collection. He has also volunteered at the Nashville Public Library.

He is still deciding whether to pursue a career in special collections or in public libraries.
