Dav Robertson: SLA Fellow
Chief NIEHS librarian Dav Robertson is among the 22 people recognized as "Info Heroes" by the Special Library Association.
SLA honorees will be saluted June 5 at the SLA 2205 Annual Conference in Toronto. They were chosen because they "consistently deliver value for their organizations and the profession" and "set the standard for information professional worldwide," according to an SLA press release.
The SLA web site said this about Robertson:
"Dav is active in a number of professional organizations, but his devotion belongs to SLA, where he has become a leader. His success in SLA is the result of success in his career. Dav is the quintessential information professional: talented, dedicated, kind, supportive. He has a remarkable record as a mentor to dozens of library and information science students and mid-career information professionals. He's been honored by employers, the SLA North Carolina Chapter and, most recently, his alma mater. In 2004, Dav received the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of North Carolina School of Information and Library Science. With his SLA leadership experience at the chapter, division, and association level, Dav is poised to do even greater things."
The SLA is a nonprofit global organization with more than 12,000 members in 83 countries.
