Aaron Trehub Receives 2010 AACRL Achievement Award
Aaron Trehub, assistant dean for technology and technical services at the Auburn University Libraries, has received the 2010 Sue O. Medina Award for Significant Contribution from the Alabama Association of College and Research Libraries (AACRL). The annual award honors library and information professionals and graduate students who work or reside in Alabama and have made a significant contribution in the area of college and research libraries on the local, state, regional, national or international level.
Trehub was selected to receive the award for his efforts in support of two Network of Alabama Academic Libraries projects, AlabamaMosaic and the Alabama Digital Preservation Network (ADPNet); his involvement in several ground-breaking initiatives fostered by the Association of Research Libraries and the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries; and his excellent leadership, vision and work toward the overall advancement of libraries. AlabamaMosaic exists as it does today because of Trehub’s assiduous support, and his work as project director of ADPNet has developed the project into an innovative model for low-cost preservation and archival solutions.
Trehub’s award marks the second time in a decade that a member of the Auburn University Libraries staff has won the Sue O. Medina Award. Marcia Boosinger, associate dean for public services, won the award in 2004.
