Judith Russell, Dean of the University of Florida’s Libraries, and alumna of the Catholic University of America’s School of Library and Information Science, has been selected to receive the 2017 Miles Conrad Award “in recognition of her significant achievements in librarianship and for her leadership in information services throughout a career spanning academia, government, the non-profit and private sectors,” according to the NFAIS Press Release.
The National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS™) is a global nonprofit membership organization serving the information services community. Dean Russell will be honored at the NFAIS 2017 Annual Conference in Alexandria, Virginia, where she will deliver the annual Miles Conrad Memorial Lecture on February 27th.
