The ACRL Awards committee noted that the  HCCC Library impressed the committee with its impact on student learning, campus technology, and outreach services.

“Hudson County Community College Library staff demonstrated a clear focus on students through their active social media outreach, inclusion of students on their advisory board, and various other collaborative efforts in which students are involved,” said Trevor Dawes, chair of the 2016 Excellence in Academic Libraries Committee and associate university librarian at Washington University in St. Louis. “The library staff has done and impressive job at incorporating information literacy components across all General Education courses, resulting in a positive impact on student learning. Additionally, the library has demonstrated technology leadership across the campuses through the use of various services, such as the iPad cart and the makerspace. The solutions to meet campus needs are both high-tech and low-tech, based on the needs of the constituents.”

“Receiving this award is a great honor for our library and our college,” said Hudson County Community College Associate Dean for College Libraries Carol Van Houten. “Our achievements are the direct result of having a dedicated and creative library staff who truly care about our students. We are so happy to be recognized as an outstanding community college library!”

The HCCC Library will receive $3,000 and a plaque, to be presented at an award ceremony later this year.

Additional information about the award, including a list of past winners, is available on the ACRL website. Further information about this year’s award is available from the ACRL Insider.
