Successful libraries require the contributions of many different groups of people. From librarians who care for collections to patrons who utilize the resources and support the library with their tuition or tax dollars, no library can thrive without the participation of its community. On an academic campus, faculty members are also essential to the library by sharing their subject area expertise in collection development and by encouraging student research. Active faculty support of the library signals to students that the library is an important and valuable resource.
The Union College Library Teacher of the Year Award recognizes faculty members who are particularly faithful in their support of student research and development of the library's collections. For 2010 we are pleased to announce that Mike Huckabee is teacher of the year!
Thank you, Mike, for your dedication in promoting library resources and services in the PA program.
