The 2022 Committee


Every complete application is judged anonymously and independently by each member of the Library Prize Committee according to the evaluation criteria (See Evaluation Criteria). Scores are then analyzed, averaged, and ranked to determine an overall winner or winners and any runners-up. 

The committee aims to be composed of several librarians and ideally three faculty members representing the broad branches of study consisting in the arts and humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences.

This year's committee was formed in the midst of the global COVID pandemic:


Kate Bengtson, Instructional Technology Specialist

Taylor Desloge, Visiting Assistant Professor of History

Ashley Hanson, Research and Instruction Librarian

Jenifer L. Ishee, Linda Lear Librarian for Special Collections and Archives

Lori Looney, Research, Data, and Collection Support Librarian

Andrew Lopez, Research Support Librarian, Government Documents

Di Luo, Chu-Niblack Assistant Professor of Art History and Architectural Studies
