University of Idaho librarians receive national recognition
Two University of Idaho librarians have received national recognition for their excellent contributions to the library profession.
Library Journal recently named Digital Initiative and Web Services Librarian Devin Becker as a “Mover and Shaker,” one of 50 outstanding professionals committed to providing excellent service to meet the needs of the people they serve. Becker was selected in the Tech Leader category for his success expanding the library’s digital initiatives collections.
Earlier this year, the American Library Association (ALA) accepted Scholarly Communications Librarian Annie Gaines into its Class of 2014 Emerging Leaders. The program awards grants to newer library professionals to ALA’s 2014 conferences, where they participate in problem-solving work groups with their peers and serve the profession in a leadership capacity.
