Professional Achievement Award (Librarians)

These awards also valued at $1,500 are presented to two professional librarians for outstanding performance.

Janet Carson
Subject Supervisor, Reference Services

When Janet Carson graduated in June 2002 with a Ph.D. in Sociology, she became the first member of Carleton’s library staff to obtain a doctorate. Her thesis on “The Professional Labour Process in the Academic Library: A Political Economic Analysis”, has made a valuable academic contribution to her profession. What is also significant about her success is that it was achieved while she continued working in her regular job—teaching, collection and reference duties—with dedication and enthusiasm.

Colleen Neely,
Technical Services Librarian

Colleen Neely has continued to grow and develop as a librarian, taking on new and increased responsibilities, most recently as Acting Head of Acquisitions and now in the new senior position of Technical Services Librarian. Her continuing professional activity in CASLIS, where she is now serving as national treasurer, coupled with her involvement in library committee work and in CUASA and PEC matters, demonstrates her commitment to her profession, at both the local (campus) and national level.
