Laurie Alexander and Jamie Lausch Vander Broek

Librarians Laurie Alexander and Jamie Lausch Vander Broek were among twenty-five faculty members honored this year for their teaching, scholarship, service and creative activities.

Alexander, associate university librarian for learning and teaching, received the University Librarian Achievement Award, presented for exceptional distinction reflected in active and innovative career achievements in library, archival or curatorial services. She was recognized as being at "the forefront of University Library efforts to engage with learning and teaching activities through original and forward-looking services, programs, and partnerships, [...] efforts that partner the library with faculty and students in the development and delivery of high-quality instructional programs."

Vander Broek received the University Librarian Recognition Award, which honors an individual who holds a primary faculty appointment as librarian, archivist or curator with no more than eight years’ practice in the profession. Selection criteria include active and innovative early career achievements in library, archival or curatorial services. Vander Broek, learning librarian and exhibits and programming librarian, was described as a "rising star in libraries at U-M and nationally [who] helps make the University Library's vast resources accessible to students, faculty members and the public, and encourages library users to engage with those resources more deeply."
