Stanford Libraries' very own University Librarian Michael Keller has been named this year's Cuthbertson Award winner and will receive the award on Sunday, June 14, at the 124th Commencement Ceremony.
Mike was featured in the June 10th issue of the Stanford Report:
He was honored "for 22 years of exceptional creativity and strong leadership of Stanford University Libraries, bringing it into the digital age and developing it into one of the premier facilities in the world."
The award commended Keller "for pioneering new paths as the director of Academic Information Resources, while continuing to develop the libraries' superb collections," and "for his clear commitment to scholarly publishing, exemplified in his founding of HighWire Press and ongoing support of Stanford University Press."
He was honored "for understanding the hybrid nature of today's university research libraries, overseeing the transition to technologically state-of-the-art resources where feasible, while ensuring the availability of works unlikely to be digitized in the near future," and "for his innovative and collaborative support of Academic Computing and undergraduate teaching programs."
Keller was commended "for keeping the university's mission and the needs of Stanford's faculty, graduate students and undergraduates first and foremost in mind."
