Lina Sheahan, music librarian and assistant professor, was recognized by the members of the Southeast Chapter of the Music Librarian Association (SEMLA) for her presentation at the 2019 chapter meeting at the University of Mississippi. The presentation, “Librarian on the Go: Facilitating Experiential Learning Abroad,” showcased how she planned experiences for her Maymester students that integrated libraries, music and outdoor activities to teach Norwegian music and culture.  

SEMLA members chose Sheahan’s presentation to represent the chapter in the Music Library Association’s Best of Chapters competition. She will compete against members from the other nine chapters, and if her presentation is chosen as the winner, she will present it again at the 2021 MLA Annual Meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio.
