Nancy Chaffin Hunter recognized with Faculty Award for Excellence

June 1, 2011

CSU Libraries Associate Professor Nancy Chaffin Hunter has been selected to receive the 2011 Colorado State University Libraries Faculty Award for Excellence.

This award recognizes a member of the Libraries faculty for outstanding contributions to the Libraries, to the University, and to the library profession.

Professor Hunter has worked as the CSU Libraries’ metadata librarian since 2001. She received her MLS from the University of Arizona in 1991 and began her career as a cataloger at Texas A&M University.

Prior to joining CSU, Professor Hunter worked for seven years as the serials librarian at Arizona State University West. As metadata librarian, she works to provide access not only to electronic resources but to traditional ones as well. She has recently spent a great deal of time in planning for the merge of the CSU-Pueblo library catalog into the Fort Collins system, assisting a team in the creation of a shared resource for the students, faculty, and staff of both institutions.

Professor Hunter exemplifies excellence in service not only as the recent chair of the Faculty Council Committee on Libraries but also as a co-chair of the CSU Libraries and Poudre River Library District Joint E-Book Reader Committee. Nancy’s knowledge and leadership abilities facilitate these and other committees in accomplishing important work for the benefit of library patrons locally and around the world.

She is commended for being able to bridge the library-technology crevasse, making sure that new technology fits user and researcher needs.

A reception honoring Professor Hunter will be held in the courtyard of Morgan Library on June 7, 2011, at 3 p.m. All are invited to participate in the celebration.
