Brown Biggers of the University Libraries Named 2016 Paralibrarian of the Year by Library Journal

The March 1, 2016 cover of Library Journal, one of the most respected journals in the field, brought welcome news to UNCG.  It features our own Brown Biggers, named Paralibrarian of the Year.

Here's they way the Library Journal story opens:

In a compelling entry supported by 20 passionate letters from the academic community of the University of North Carolina, Greensboro (UNCG), and beyond—including deans, faculty, administrators, librarians, community leaders, and coworkers—Brown Biggers was overwhelmingly recommended for LJ‘s 2016 Paralibrarian of the Year Award, sponsored by DEMCO. Among the highlights, nominators pointed to Biggers’s communication and teaching skills, technological expertise, commitment to service both at his job and in the larger Greensboro community, and genuine love for people.

A member of the UNCG Libraries IT Department, Biggers “tends to be behind the scenes and invisible to our users,” says nominator Tim Bucknall, assistant dean of university libraries and head of electronic resources and information technologies at UNCG, “but he has made a habit of making himself highly visible by finding new ways for all libraries to help their communities.”

For those with UNCG IDs and therefore access to our databases and electronic journals, you may view the full story here.

Congratulations to our most deserving colleague.
