Syracuse University Libraries recognized their student employees with a virtual celebration on April 22. Annually, the Libraries employs over 150 students, both customer-facing and behind the-scenes, who help keep the Libraries running. Each year supervisors are asked to nominate student employees who have demonstrated dedicated service over time and significant contributions which have made a lasting impact on the Libraries. The Libraries recognize these students through the generous support of Kathy and Stanley Walters, Andrew Strait and friends, and other donors. This year’s award recipients and their respective Libraries departments are:

Kathy and Stanley Walters Student Scholarship Fund

Patricia Kutner Strait Student Scholarship

SU Libraries Dean’s Fund

Student Honorable Mentions:

“We value all our library students and benefit from their enthusiasm and expertise every day. As Dean of Libraries and University Librarian I am very clear on how important our student employees are. Many work for us throughout their undergraduate and graduate careers at SU and they all are part of the SU Libraries family. From Bird and Carnegie to the King+King Architecture Libraries, our student employees contribute to the safety of our spaces, the quality and repair of our collections, and to our ability to provide a high level of service at our desks (real and virtual),” said David Seaman, University Librarian and Dean of SU Libraries.

The University also recognizes a Student Employee Supervisor of the Year, and this year Eric Nemier, a Department of Public Safety Officer in Bird Library, has been selected by colleagues and student employees for connecting and mentoring his student employees.
