Elizabeth Morris Award

Liz Morris, Kris Alpi and Brian Dietz

Congratulations to VML Student Assistant, Elizabeth (Liz) Morris!!

Three NCSU Libraries student assistants were honored at the Student Assistant Program Committee’s spring student appreciation and awards event. Elizah Warren and Aaron Arthur were named Above and Beyond awardees, and Elizabeth Morris was recognized as the Outstanding Student Assistant of the Year.

“This year, the committee received a record number of nominations, and they were all so strong,” says Brian Dietz, Digital Program Librarian for Special Collections and program committee chair. “The level of appreciation of our student staff was so apparent from the nominations. And, it’s well deserved. We hold the spring celebration and awards ceremony to try to convey to our student assistants how much we value their contributions.”

Known for her enthusiasm and work ethic, Morris joined the team at the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Library of Veterinary Medicine in October 2013. The senior psychology major added service at the D. H. Hill Library Ask Us desk in 2015.

Quickly, Morris assumed a leadership role at Vet Med, even co-authoring a research paper with library director Kris Alpi. The paper, entitled “Attracting Researchers through Sharing Our Expertise: Content Analysis of Library Staff Listings and Librarian Web Pages,” won third place at the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the 2015 Medical Library Association Annual Meeting.

This kind of initiative is reflected in her training of other student assistants at both D. H. Hill and Vet Med, not only to do basic patron services but also to work on special projects such as the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians slide scanning project coordinated by NCSU Libraries Fellow James Cheng.
