Sara Benson has been recognized with the Campus Excellence in Public Engagement Faculty & Staff – Emerging Award for her wide-ranging work in helping people understand the intricacies of copyright.
Benson serves as the University Library’s Copyright Librarian, but her efforts extend far beyond campus and its academic personnel. She has appeared before the U.S. Copyright Office, advised Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, worked on international copyright matters, reached thousands with her Copyright Chat podcast and YouTube channel, and advocated for and protected librarians across the nation through her invitation-only role as a member of the American Library Association Policy Corps.
This spring, Mark Zulauf, Researcher Information Systems Coordinator, received the Chancellor’s Staff Excellence Award in the area of Research for his work with the Illinois Experts portal and the University of Illinois’ ORCID membership.
Both systems have enhanced collaboration among researchers and advanced Illinois’ profile on the national level.
At the end of each academic term, students are provided with the chance to assess instruction and course quality through the Instructor and Course Evaluation System (ICES) questionnaire forms. These forms are maintained by Measurement and Evaluation, Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning. Through this evaluation process, three University Library faculty were recognized on Fall 2022’s List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by Their Students. These individuals, and their courses, are acknowledged below.
To follow our previous post covering presentations, we recognize the publications our Library faculty and academic professionals have published last fall. See the selected bibliography below to learn more about these topics.
