Former SLA Board Member Named Librarian of the Year

Dr. Jesus Lau, a former director serving on SLA's Board (2002 – 2005) was recently named Librarian of the Year at the 25th Guadalajara International Book Fair, the second largest in the world after Frankfurt.

The honor is the most prestigious award granted to a librarian in Mexico.

Dr. Lau is Director of USBI VER Library at the University of Veracruzana, Mexico, where he created the school's first online course for undergraduates in Mexico. The course enables distance education programs in 28 public and private universities of Veracruz.

Jesus is President of the Mexican Association of Librarians (2009-2011) and has authored more than 150 papers and magazine articles, as well as 15 books in the field of information. Apart from SLA, he is also active in the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA), notably founding its Information Literacy Section and coordinating the International Directory of Resources and Information Literacy.

On behalf of SLA, congratulations, Dr. Lau!
