Outstanding Contribution Award

Librarian Christine Walde

UVic Librarian Christine Walde, who specializes in grants and awards, has won the 2018 BC Academic Libraries Section (BCALS) Outstanding Contribution Award.

The annual award recognizes an individual who works in an academic library whose professional achievements have made a difference to students, faculty, or colleagues in British Columbia. The selection committee noted Walde’s many accomplishments during her short tenure as a librarian, and praised her ability to collaborate across professional lines; connect the libraries to opportunities in the larger community; and promote the libraries’ strengths to external stakeholders. This is the first time a UVic librarian has received the award. Bravo!
