iSchoolers in the News
Cheryl Metoyer, an iSchool associate professor emerita, recently was given the American Indian Library Association’s Legacy Award at the Joint Conference of Librarians of Color. In giving her the award, the AILA noted Metoyer’s mentorship of the next generation of Native American librarians. Naomi Bishop, a 2010 alumna of the iSchool’s MLIS program, was also honored at the conference. She was given the AILA Rising Leader award.
Cynthia del Rosario, the iSchool’s diversity, equity and access officer, is being honored later this month by the UW Alumni Association’s Multicultural Alumni Partnership with its highest honor, the Samuel E. Kelly Award. Del Rosario works to foster an equitable learning and work environment for iSchool students, faculty and staff.
Rolf Hapel recently joined the iSchool faculty as our Distinguished Practitioner in Residence. We talked to Rolf for a Q&A about his role at the school and his views on the future of libraries.

My mentor, inspiration, collaborator, co-signer. Cynthia has been so important to my academic and personal journey. Always a reminder that we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us, and to pay it forward with kindness. https://t.co/HNByRbEFLl
