Carol H Thank you for all you have done for the Libraries during your tenure. Your advocacy of the Library as a relevant and valuable part of the University -- also valuing the Staff just as strongly -- has been very much needed and appreciated. It has been an uphill fight all the way and we are saddened that you are departing so suddenly. And not least of all, we were glad to be able to share in your enthusiasm of social bonding over food! I'm not sure it has completely sunk in that we aren't going to be able to enjoy your rum cake one more time.  2/2021

Your work is critical to the day-to-day operation, as well as the implementation of the long-term strategic vision for the Libraries.

You make the Libraries look good by providing a solid foundation for everything else.  2/2021
Bill A for keeping so much running smoothly in the Wimberly Library by checking on physical facilities and what needs replaced or repaired. Your amazing success rate of finding over 50% of books reported lost allows us to provide much better service to our patrons who are currently not able to access the stacks.

You never shy away from a challenge and you provide many excellent models for the Libraries as a whole.  2/2021
Collection Management doing the work of three times as many people more effectively and efficiently than when there were a lot more people doing the work.

Special Collections (including Main, RSA, and Jaffe) your creative vision and dedication to serving FAU and the broader community through innovative programming, maintaining and providing physical and virtual access to our special collections, and sharing what you know through classes, exhibits, tours, and more.

Vicky T never backing down from a challenge and supporting the people around you with wisdom and compassion through challenging times. You rock! 2/2021
Carol H Thank you so much, Carol, for bringing me to the Libraries. Building a program of philanthropy from scratch is a multi-year project that takes nurture and time before it bears fruit. Your understanding, support, and enthusiasm for this is amazing. I'm really sad that you won't be here as Dean when this program you started begins to flourish but the clarity of your tenacious leadership has laid a strong foundation, and I know I'll hear you cheering from afar. May luck always favor you in this new journey! 2/2021

Mahesh N and all of ITS never saying "no" and finding a way to implement new ideas and technologies during the most trying times imaginable.

What an amazing model for the Libraries and the University!  2/2021
ILL department, including Brian W being the foundation of so much of the libraries' service to students and faculty for much of the past year. You have brought your creativity and dedication to bear on what you do enabling our users to get access to the content they need for their study and research and you have also developed the techniques that keep our staff and our users safe while they get the materials they need. Without you, all the rest would have fallen apart!  2/2021
Christie L taking on every weird project that no one else knew about, as well as being such an active and visible support to the Dean in the many public events set up to engage with our students.

You are an amazing organizer and positive influence, with an ability to motivate people 2/2021
Tinessa C & Sarah E bringing your creative ideas, positive energy, and strong follow through and organizational skills to bear on a wide variety of projects over the past few years.
