Jill Emery Wins Esther J. Piercy Award

Jill Emery, Director of the Electronic Resources Program at the
University of Houston Libraries, is the 2006 recipient of the Esther
J. Piercy Award for her success in the world of serials
librarianship, especially her knowledge of electronic resources
licensing and pricing models.  Emery shaped how libraries use and
acquire electronic resources and influenced the development of new
and improved products and services by sharing her expertise with
colleagues, publishers, and vendors.

Very active professionally, Emery was elected Chair Elect of the
Serials Round Table of the Texas Library Association in her second
year out of library school. She currently serves on three publisher
advisory boards as well as two elected national offices, Chair of
the ALCTS Serials Section and a Board Member-at-Large of NASIG.
Library Journal acknowledged her achievements in naming her one of
50 Movers and Shakers for 2004. Emery has a BA in Literature from
Texas A&M University at College Station and an MLIS from the
University of Texas at Austin.

The Esther J. Piercy Award, established by ALCTS in 1968 in memory
of Esther J. Percy, the editor of Journal of Cataloging and
Classification from 1950 to 1956 and of Library Resources and
Technical Services from 1957 to 1967, is given to recognize the
contribution to those areas of librarianship included in library
collections and technical services by a librarian with not more than
ten years of professional experience who has shown outstanding
promise for continuing contribution and leadership. The recipient
receives a $1500 grant donated by YBP, Inc. and a citation in
recognition of his/her accomplishments.

The award jury consisted of chair Larry Heiman, Karen Brown, Julie
Moore, John Radencich, and Bonnie Tijerina.
