NVC Library Wins Prestigious Award

NVC Library Wins Prestigious Award

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) recently announced that the Northwest Vista College Library was chosen to receive the 2010 Community and Junior College Libraries Section (CJCLS) EBSCO Community College Learning Resources Program Achievement Award.

“What Northwest Vista College Library has achieved with their information literacy instruction and distance programming is a credit to all that were involved,” said José Aguiñaga, award committee chair and librarian at Glendale Community College North. “The outstanding results from these initiatives have transformed the one-shot instruction approach to a multi-faceted learning environment for students and faculty.”

The NVC faculty created a diverse approach to library instruction, including innovative uses of technological resources to develop new approaches to information literacy efforts.

The $500 award and plaque will be presented June 25 at the ALA Annual Conference in Washington D.C.
