OSU Libraries and Press celebrated outstanding work during the last year in an award ceremony attended by enthusiastic staff and proud family members on May 14. The Totten Scholarship recognizes students who have been employed at OSU Libraries for at least three consecutive terms and who exhibit excellent qualities at work such as leadership, initiative, ambition, strong customer service ethic, and reliability.  Congratulations to Gjeryl Fajardo, Nicole Gregoire, and Kristin Bates, our Totten scholarship winners for this year, who each received a certificate recognizing their outstanding service to the library and a scholarship of $250.

 The Graduating Student $750 Totten scholarship goes to a deserving, graduating student who has been employed at OSU Libraries for at least two academic years, has demonstrated outstanding work performance, and has exhibited excellent qualities at work such as leadership, initiative, ambition, strong customer service ethic, and reliability.  This year, the committee awarded Totten scholarships to two graduating seniors:  Thanh X. Nguyen who works in Circulation and to Matthew Schuck who works in Instruction and User Services.

 The award ceremony also paid tribute to employees for their years of service.  Anne-Marie Deitering, Jessicca Layton, Jane Nichols, and Ryan Wick each received a certificate and an OSU bookstore gift certificate in recognition of 10 years of service.  JoLynn O’Hearn received a certificate and an OSU bookstore gift certificate for 15 years of service.   Deanne Bruner received a certificate and an OSU bookstore gift certificate for 20 years of service.  Janet Webster received a certificate and an OSU bookstore gift certificate for 25 years of service.  Susan Gilmont received a certificate and an OSU bookstore gift certificate, as well as a big round of applause, for her 35 years of service.

 The Excellence Awards recognize contributions to advancing the four goals of the library; developing a project or program, or simplifying a process; or fostering and promoting a collaborative work environment.  The Outstanding Classified Employee Award went to Ian Scofield.   Steven Sowell received the Outstanding Faculty Award, and the Hydra project team received the Group Project Award recognizing the work of Tom Johnson, Trey Terrell, Ryan Wick, and Evviva Weinraub.  Finally, the Committee Choice Award was given to Gregorio Luis Ramirez.

 Please offer your congratulations to these deserving individuals.

A generous estate gift has enabled OSU Libraries and Press to endow the Library Undergraduate Research Award. “Oregon State University Libraries and Press contributes to student success in many ways,” said Faye A. Chadwell, Donald & Delpha Campbell University Librarian and OSU Press Director. “Funding LURA in perpetuity demonstrates our strong commitment to undergraduates at OSU.” The annual Library Undergraduate Research Award (LURA) recognizes outstanding research, scholarship, and originality in writing a paper or completing a project. The winning students receive a $1000 scholarship and present their research findings at a formal ceremony.

 The endowment for the awards was created from funds provided by the estate of Gilbert and Marie Cleasby. Marie, a 1952 OSU graduate, majored in home economics and was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority. She also was a member of the college chorus during her freshman year. She became a master gardener. Gilbert W. Cleasby, M.D., was a well-respected ophthalmologist in the Bay Area.

 The Cleasbys supported a number of meaningful causes in San Francisco throughout their lives and so it seemed fitting to honor their generous donation with a meaningful award for undergraduates. LURA was created seven years ago as an initiative of the Library Advisory Council. Previous winners have submitted papers on topics ranging from the socio-religious implications of the hijab headscarf to the impact of the grapevine leafroll virus on pinot noir fruit.

 This year’s winners are Brittany Backen, a history major; and Arlyn Y. Moreno Luna, a BioResource Research major. Backen’s research paper is entitled “Coed Cheesecake”:  The 1959 Wrestling Court and the Politics of the Marriage Market at Oregon State College. Luna’s research paper is on the Effects of Xanthohumol on Biomarkers of Metabolic Syndrome in Obese Rats. Previous winning papers are available online in ScholarsArchive@OSU, the University’s institutional repository, at http://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/xmlui/handle/1957/4505.

 On May 9, 2014 at 2:00 pm the LURA winners will be presented with their awards in a public ceremony in the rotunda of The Valley Library. All are welcome to join us in celebrating student scholarship by attending this special event.
