Congratulations to BSU Student Employee of the Year

Great students make a great library! We're proud to announce that Jonathan Donahue, our amazing Lab Manager in Library Computer Services, has been named the recipient of the Boise State University 2009-2010 Student Employee of the Year award. 

You may have seen him around the library keeping our lab computers running smoothly. Jon has worked as Lab Manager for the last two years while pursuing his Computer Science and Math degrees. He has demonstrated not only the advanced technical skills required by the position but he also brings to the job a terrific attitude -- he's courteous, patient, and positive, and best of all he's always attentive to the needs of library coworkers, faculty, and students.

He has far exceeded expectations in every area. Jon is Albertsons Library's first recipient of the award, and we're lucky to have him on our team.

Tribute to Velma Morrison

During the Spring 2010 commencement ceremony on May 15, Velma Morrison will receive an honorary doctorate from Boise State University. Morrison is only the eighth person to receive this honor from Boise State.

Morrison has maintained a partnership with the university for over thirty years, known for developing the Velma V. Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, as well as providing millions of dollars to numerous buildings and projects at Boise State University.

To commemorate her long association with the university, Albertsons Library Special Collections created a special tribute on Velma Morrison featuring photographs from its collection. To access the online tribute, please visit http://library.boisestate.edu/vmorrison.
