Jenny Raabe, our friend and colleague in the University Libraries,  has died at the age of 61.  Jenny will be warmly remembered for her love of life, learning, and the University Libraries.

Student Worker and LIS student Tiffany Henry Awarded Spectrum Scholarship by American Library Association

When The American Library Association's (ALA) Office for Diversity recently awarded 2014-2015 Spectrum Scholarships to 50 exceptional students pursuing graduate degrees in library and information studies, UNCG’s Tiffany Henry was among them. Tiffany is one of our student workers at the University Libraries who works with our NC DOCKS content. From Durham and a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, she is a student in  UNCG’s LIS Program who is interested in pursuing a career in cataloging and metadata work in academic libraries.

A prestigious committee of seven jurors selected this year’s Spectrum Scholars based on their commitment to diversity, commitment to entering the library profession, demonstrated community outreach, academic ability and achievements and leadership potential.

Congratulations, Tiffany!
