Chris Stotelmyer has been named the spring 2009 recipient of the Carolyn L. Robison Library Award. Chris’ five years of service at Georgia State, as a student assistant and employee, have represented the educational values and high professional standards of Dr. Robison during her years of service at the University Library.
Chris is a Library Technical Assistant for the Learning Commons and is currently pursuing a Master of Library and Information Science at Valdosta State University. His supervisor, La Loria Konata, remarks that Chris “has exhibited his professionalism through pro-activity, customer service, and problem-solving,” and she also states that “he will surely be a great benefit to the profession.” Chris’s immediate goal is to become a generalist librarian, and he aspires to be a health science librarian in the future.
The Robison Library Award was established in honor of Dr. Carolyn L. Robison upon her retirement after a 31 year career at Georgia State University Library. The fund also strives to promote Dr. Robison’s long term interest in encouraging the development of library staff members. This award provides financial assistance to a staff member of the University Library or the College of Law Library who is pursuing further education for a career in libraries. All of us at the Library are most grateful of the steadfast generosity of Dr. Robison.
