Librarian Anita Whitehead Receives SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Librarianship

On Thursday, August 18, 2011, seven Genesee Community College faculty and staff members received SUNY Chancellor’s Awards, which recognize outstanding contributions to their respective professional fields, campuses, communities and the public at large.  Librarian Anita Whitehead received the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Librarianship. Anita started on a part-time basis in 2004 and became a permanent full-time reference services librarian in 2007. She has been instrumental in developing many new library services such as LibGuides and has started a faculty outreach activity to keep faculty abreast of journal information in their respective areas. Several years ago, Anita started the “Roving Librarian” to take the library cart to different locations on campus to be available for student questions. Anita lives in Geneseo, NY.

The library is proud to note that all of the full-time librarians, including Cindy Francis, Nicki Lerczak, and Michelle Eichelberger, as well as Library Director Nina Warren have all received SUNY Chancellor's Awards for Excellence in Librarianship.
