Please send in your DEWEY nominations!

Gina Austin-Fresh, 2011 DEWEY Award winner

Butler Students, Staff and Faculty:

The Libraries at Butler annually recognize the outstanding work of a faculty member who is an extraordinary developer of library users of a new generation. We applaud their valuable contribution to the information literacy of our students. Jane Watkins, retired English Department instructor, was our winner in 2010, Gina Austin-Fresh in 2011. Today you can nominate a faculty member to receive the 2012 Butler Libraries DEWEY Award.

If you learned how to navigate the library this year, had an assignment that got you thinking about how easy the librarians were to work with, or were inspired by a colleague's use of the library in teaching, this is your chance to recognize an influential faculty member.

Please go to to complete the brief nomination form. Nominations close March 16, 2012. Representatives from the library and the Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Karla Fisher, will select the winner. We will award the prizes on Institutional Development Day. Prizes include appearing on a Read poster, a gift certificate and a $500 grant for library materials in the instructor’s area of expertise.

Questions? Call Micaela Ayers, Director of Library Services, 316-322-3235,
Thank you for your help in selecting our winner in 2012!

Jane Watkins, 2010 DEWEY Award winner
