Friends And Colleagues Gather To Honor Mary Jane Petrowski

ACRLog readers are probably familiar with the regular bloggers here at ACRLog. You may even know Kevin Clarke – our behind the scenes tech guru. But there’s another person who is instrumental to keeping ACRLog running as smoothly as it does. That would be Mary Jane Petrowski, the Associate Director of ACRL. I like to think of her as ACRLog’s 5th Beatle.

During the Seattle Midwinter conference many of Mary Jane’s friends and colleagues gathered to honor her, somewhat belatedly, and celebrate Mary Jane’s winning the ACRL Instruction Section’s (IS) Miriam Dudley Instruction Librarian Award.The award honors Miriam Dudley, whose efforts in the field of information literacy lead to the formation of IS. The honor recognizes a librarian who has made a significant contribution to the advancement of instruction in a college or research library environment.

In the photo below from the party, Mary Jane (on the left) shares a Kodak moment with Mary Reichel, past president of ACRL and Chair of the upcoming Baltimore conference.
