Gale is holding a competition to see who is the greatest library superhero! Interim Dean Deborah Poole has already placed one nomination.
“I nominate Teri Gallaway, Systems and Metadata Initiatives Coordinator @ the J. Edgar & Louise S. Monroe Library, Loyola Univ New Orleans. A super hero of extraordinary powers. In addition to jumping tall buildings at a single bound, Teri solves the most complex problems (and actually enjoys doing so!). Teri demonstrates her super-human strength and x-ray future vision as web coordinator, instructor, liaison, systems guru, learning commons counselor, and strategic planner. From setting up online serials to classroom teaching, Teri is a blended librarian par excellence! Ever-generous and enthusiastic, Teri, along with her team of superheroes, (and 1/2 of a dynamic duo) demonstrates the power of libraries to inform, educate, and inspire.”
Four librarians will be selected from your submissions and turned into cartoon superheros. Winners will be featured on a metal lunch box and unveiled at ALA in New Orleans. Just post your nomination as a new wall post on the “Are You a Librarian Superhero” facebook page.
The Monroe Library is full of librarian superheros. Who’s yours?
