Setting the New Standard for Excellence: Dean Patricia Iannuzzi Named ACRL Academic/Research Librarian of the Year

By BTL on March 11, 2013 10:00 AM | Permalink

UNLV’s Dean of Libraries, Patricia Iannuzzi, was recently named the 2013 Academic/Research Librarian of the Year by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL). This milestone accomplishment reflects national appreciation for Dean Iannuzzi’s impact on the library profession through administrative leadership and scholarly contributions.

The award selection committee considers outstanding industry professionals who have made a significant national or international contribution to academic or research librarianship and library development. David D. Oberhelman, chair of the ACRL Academic/Research Librarian of the Year Award Committee and professor in the Oklahoma State University Library Humanities-Social Sciences Division stated, “We are thrilled to honor her with this award for her remarkable ability to effect positive change, for as they say at the UNLV Libraries, ‘Patty will kick down the doors, so be ready to walk through them.’ Patty has been kicking down doors for us all and has been cheering us on to excellence as we walk through those doors.”

Dean Iannuzzi is a renowned advocate for the impact of libraries and librarians on student learning. As chair of task forces on information literacy competency standards and standards for libraries in higher education, she has raised awareness and established significant goals to ensure libraries remain integral players within their own institutions. The impact of her work can be documented at all levels—at UNLV, within the field of librarianship, and within the field of higher education itself.

The ACRL will bestow this great honor at its 2013 conference to be held in Indianapolis on April 10,2013. The full announcement is available online in the ACRL Insider published January 22, 2013:
