Information Literacy Partner of the Month

September/October 2021

Lauren Hill​Congratulations to Professor Lauren Hill of the Clarke Honors College, who is the SU Libraries’ Information Literacy Partner of the Month for September-October!

In nominating Professor Hill, Melinda McPeek, Curator of Exhibits and Engagement for the SU Libraries, wrote:


During the month of September, Professor Lauren Hill helped organize and facilitate three separate events with the Nabb Research Center connected to the Voices and Votes exhibitions. She hosted two social events for her Honors 111 courses that provided students the opportunity to explore Nabb exhibits and brainstorm ideas for research topics. Professor Hill also helped organize a Voices and Votes game night event at the Nabb Center. During each of these events Professor Hill’s enthusiasm and excitement inspired students to truly engage with the exhibits and activities and in turn prompted excellent discussions. As an added bonus, she always has a bag of snacks on hand for those in need of a pick-me-up!

It is for this willingness to creatively work with librarians to help students engage with information sources (in this case, exhibits) that we have chosen Professor Hill as our IL Partner of the Month for September-October. I would like to note that she is now a two-time winner of this award, having won in November-December 2015.

In addition to recognizing Professor Hill on the SU Libraries’ website and social media, we also will purchase a book in a field of her choice to be added to the Libraries’ collection in her honor.
