No comments :
On November 22, Lindsay Johnston, Public Services Manager for Rutherford Library and Weir Law Library, was recognized for her outstanding performance and exceptional contribution to the University of Alberta. Lindsay was nominated for the Academic Staff Recognition Award by colleagues. This award recognizes employees who contribute to creating a positive culture within their department and a healthy work environment, bring their best selves and an innovative approach to work, serve as an outstanding U of A ambassador, and are a valued team player.

In her nomination, Lindsay’s colleagues described her genuine care, approachability, and the great sense of humour that she brings to work every day. Lindsay is known as a reliable, fair, non-judgemental person who goes above and beyond to advocate for the staff she supervises, her colleagues, and all library users. She is considered a mentor by her librarian colleagues and always keeps staff informed of service changes.

In addition to her role as Public Service Manager and Subject Librarian for Slavic Studies and Philosophy, Lindsay is an active member of a range of University of Alberta Libraries teams. She is currently the Co-Chair of the Student Library Advisory Committee and is a crucial voice in our Public Services Council. Lindsay is also very involved in numerous associations within the provincial, national, and international library community. She is frequently involved as a committee chair, executive member, or event organizer. Lindsay also models work-life balance and community involvement beyond the university for everyone at Rutherford Library through her volunteerism with the Edmonton House of Welcome where she worked to sponsor a Syrian refugee family.

Congratulations Lindsay!
