Judith Russell (MSLS 1968) received a CUA Alumni Achievement Award at the annual CUA Alumni Achievement Awards luncheon on April 9th in CUA’s newly renovated Father O’Connell Hall. Currently the Dean of Library Services at the George A. Smathers Libraries of the University of Florida, Russell had also served as Superintendent of Documents at the U.S. Government Printing Office, the first woman and second librarian to hold that position, where through her efforts GPO Access was created to improve public access to government information. Two tables of members of the SLIS community attended in Russell’s honor, including Dean Ingrid Hsieh-Yee, former Deans Marty Hale and Deanna Marcum, the SLIS Alumni Board, distinguished alumni such as Sal Constabile (MSLS 1963), SLIS faculty and adjuncts, and students including Liz McLean, the SLIS rep for the CUA student chapter of the Special Libraries Association (SLA), who introduced Judith Russell.
