Marylou Francoise, the University's Subject Librarian for Chemistry and Computer Science, has been recognised in the CILIP 125 List, part of the organisation's 125th anniversary celebrations of the granting of their Royal Charter.
Recipients were nominated by CILIP members and colleagues, who nominated individuals within the profession to recognise and honour a new generation of librarians from across the whole of the UK's information and knowledge management, recognising professionals who drive positive change, make a difference and have an impact across all sectors.
Kate Robinson, University Librarian, said: "When the list was released I felt so proud to see this recognition of Marylou and of the work of our Subject Librarians, who contribute so much to the success of our students."
Nick Poole, CILIP CEO, said: "As we face more change and opportunity in the coming years, navigating a rapidly evolving digital landscape, with the added challenges of censorship and disinformation, and an increasingly urgent need to live and work in more sustainable ways, these 125 new professionals will be leading the way. This is a set of passionate individuals, contributing energy, knowledge and impact to the institutions, organisations and communities they serve."
Please join us in congratulating Marylou Francoise for receiving this great honour.
