Someone near and dear to us recently received a prestigious award! You will recall that Emily Puckett Rodgers was the Open Education Coordinator for the Open.Michigan initiative from 2010 to 2012. Now a special projects librarian for Operations, Research, and Learning and Teaching at MLibrary, Emily continues to be an advocate for open sharing and a tireless community builder/networker within the University and beyond.
We aren’t the only ones who have noticed her excellent work. Emily has been named a “Mover & Shaker” in the library industry by the national publication, Library Journal. The award, which was announced on 15 March 2013, coincided nicely with Open Education Week. In their press release Library Journal stated “Emily Puckett Rodgers was selected because of her commitment to librarianship and dedication to developing open educational practices across learning contexts.”
We couldn’t agree more! Congratulations to Emily, on behalf of everyone in the Open Community.
