Mary-Jo Romaniuk, a graduate of our School’s Executive MLIS program and a current student in the San José Gateway PhD program, has made exploring the meaning of library leadership in the 21st century a central motivation in her professional and academic pursuits.
Kenley Neufeld, a 1994 SLIS grad and current part-time faculty member, won the EBSCO Community College Learning Resources Leadership Award for 2009, presented by the Community and Junior College Libraries Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).
SLIS student Nick Velkavrh is the 2009-2010 winner of the California Library Association’s Reference Service Press Fellowship , a $3,000 award given annually to a student preparing for a career in reference and information service librarianship.
It’s not unheard of for a librarian to be a techie, or for a lawyer to hold an MLIS degree. But it’s a rare combination for an IT expert to have both law and library science degrees. SLIS instructor and alum Robert Boyd has all three.
Recent SLIS graduate Greg Borman didn’t just write a final paper for his LIBR-275 course, Library Services for Racially and Ethnically Diverse Communities – he also got it published in a peer-reviewed journal.
