Dean Cady Short-Thompson selected UCBA Library Director, Heather Maloney for the Dean’s Award for Faculty Excellence during the 2016 UC Blue Ash Silent Auction & Distinguished Awards. The newly created award, just announced on April 7th, is intended to recognize outstanding faculty members in each college who represent excellence in all its forms. These awards are for those individuals who deans feel have done an exceptionally outstanding job for their college or department in the past year. Each college may select up to two faculty members who will be recognized as the inaugural group of recipients and will receive $2,000 in discretionary funds to be used to support their teaching or research. These faculty development awards are meant to recognize their contributions to their respective colleges and to UC, as well as support their professional efforts.

It was a surprise to everyone last night at the awards ceremony as it was a recently created award and wasn’t listed on the program. Heather considers this a win for the UCBA Library and all of the amazing library staff too. Upon receiving the award, she noted that “all the good that comes out of the library is a result of the collaboration and talents of the library team.”

Congratulations to Heather and all of her fellow award recipients!
