Courtney Fuson, librarian of electronic and educational resources at Bunch Library, recently received the Deanna Nipp-Kientz Memorial Award. This award is given to a librarian who has gone above and beyond in service for the Tennessee Library Consortium or Tenn-Share.
Tenn-Share President Laura Allison commented on Fuson’s commitment saying, “Courtney is currently one of the co-webmistresses for Tenn-Share. She has been involved with Tenn-Share since 2010, when she was the Learn & Discover chair, coordinating Tenn-Share’s online statewide training program for library staff. She began serving as a co-webmistress in 2011. She has served on several DataFest and Fall Conference committees as well. She has helped design and maintain Tenn-Share’s websites and social media presence, provided technical support and worked to help maintain Tenn-Share’s membership database. When asked to help with a task, Courtney is always willing and her knowledge and work ethic are exemplary. She truly epitomizes Deanna Nipp Kientz’s attitudes of service, hard work, and dedication to Tenn-Share.”
Tenn-Share was established in 1992 as a means of helping libraries deliver efficient, effective library services through resource sharing.
