Dana Library staff person wins Rutgers-Newark staff excellence award

The Rutgers University Libraries commend Henry Anderson, library assistant at the John Cotton Dana Library, who won the Staff Excellence Award for 2009 for the Rutgers-Newark campus. The event is sponsored by Rutgers-Newark Human Resources.

Henry was nominated for the award by his colleagues at the Dana Library. In the nomination letter, Henry was described as someone who "displays an enormous amount of team spirit when it comes to carrying out the duties of his job and even going the extra mile to accomplish a goal." Henry plays a pivotal role in setting up artist exhibits at the Dana Library, picking up and delivering gift books donated to the library, and moving and rearranging the archival materials of the Institute of Jazz Studies.

Assistant Chancellor of the Rutgers-Newark campus and Library Director Mark Winston was quoted in the letter praising Henry: "He is more than willing to take on any task and to do so with a level of enthusiasm and motivation, which is admirable."

Henry received the award at the Staff Recognition Event conducted by Rutgers-Newark Human Resources on June 18th.
