Toni Samek
Berry, John N., III
Library Journal, v132 n19 p32-34 Nov 2007
This article profiles Toni Samek, associate professor at the School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS), University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, who has been chosen as the recipient of the first annual "Library Journal" Teaching Award, sponsored by ProQuest. Samek's work goes far beyond the three standard measures of academic performance: teaching, research, and service. Her teaching "is deeply informed by her commitment to, and scholarship in, human rights and the core values of the profession," says Kenneth Gariepy, who nominated her for the award. Her career is defined by her activist dedication to student understanding, learning, and success; the ethics of the information professions; and, most important, the application of these elements to the pursuit of social justice and the engagement of librarians and information workers in that effort.
