HSU’s Theological Librarian Named 2014 Ricki Brown Librarian of the Year

Rick Brown Librarian of the Year Award honors librarians who exhibit outstanding leadership skills and make a significant contribution to library science.

 

Teresa Ellis, associate professor and theological librarian at Hardin-Simmons University, was named the Ricki Brown Librarian of the Year during this year’s West Texas Book Festival held Saturday, September 27, 2014.

“It is such an honor to receive this award,” said Ellis about her nomination as the inaugural candidate for the honor. “I really do see this as a joint effort with all of the faculty and staff in the library.”

The Ricki Brown Librarian of the Year Award honors librarians who exhibit outstanding leadership skills and make a significant contribution to library science. 

Ellis received special recognition for her efforts in enhancing awareness of HSU’s Richardson Library among students, faculty, and staff through an event titled “Ask Me”. During the event, library staff stood in locations across campus as human information booths for students needing directions or with general questions about the campus. 

Alice Specht, dean of university libraries, believes that her efforts truly promoted awareness of library programs and helped students identify with the library staff.

The West Texas Book Festival, sponsored by the Friends of the Abilene Public Library and the Abilene Reporter News, is an annual event that helps promote Abilene as a tourist destination, features local authors, and raises funds to benefit the Abilene Library.
