MTSU Librarian wins Women's Studies award

We at the library are very proud of our own Ken Middleton, a librarian in the User Services Department, for being the 2009 recipient of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Women's Studies Section (WSS) Award for Significant Achievement. The award honors a major contribution to women's studies librarianship. The award will be presented in July at the 2009 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago. For more information on this distinguished achievement, see the ALA website.

Ken's latest work brings together an accessible database of 405 digital collections of primary sources in women's history. Discovering American Women's History Online is available on the Library's homepage.

Hooray, Ken!

Congratulations, Ken!

I'm not surprised. Even before I applied for a faculty position at MTSU, I came across Ken's work on the MTSU Web site while doing some research. It made a good impression and was one of the things that made me think MTSU would be a good place to come.

Congratulation, Ken! And I see that you were also honored by the History Section of RUSA: You've created a terrific resource, and it's great to see you getting well-deserved recognition for your stellar work.
