We are pleased to announce that Todd Hannon has received the 2013 ACRL Award for Excellence for his work with rural communities through the Community Research Enhancement and Education Development (CREED) project.
This award is designed to recognize individuals or groups who achieve excellence in the field by significantly improving Oregon academic libraries or librarianship. The ACRL-Oregon board feels that Todd’s work teaching community members about the role of literature searching in the research process and helping community members with literature searches, which have played a vital role in translating librarianship into community empowerment and public health, well deserve this recognition. We are and will continue to be in great appreciation of Todd’s efforts!
Please join us in congratulating Todd! His work is truly inspiring, and is a model for academic librarians’ ability to be involved in the communities beyond our institutions.
