Recognition for Outreach and Engagement 
Natalia Fernandez, Tiah Edmunson‐Morton, and Larry Landis
, all faculty 
members in the Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives Research Center, 
developed the Oregon Tribal Archives Institute.  Graduate student Laura Cray 
joined this team to host the Institute in August 2012 on the Corvallis campus.  
Representatives from each of Oregon’s nine federally recognized tribes 
attended the week‐long intensive training sessions to address the specific 
needs related to archives and records management within Oregon’s tribal 
communities.  This OSU Libraries’ team
was the 2012 team recipient of the 
Diversity Award
, one of several awards given by the OSU Vice Provost of 
Outreach and Engagement.
OSU Libraries collaborated with the Oregon State Library to launch the 
Libraries of Oregon in late March 2012.  The Libraries of Oregon portal 
connects Oregon residents to statewide library resources as well as their local 
public libraries. This partnership solved a critical information and access gap 
for the 21 percent of Oregonians who were not receiving adequate public 
library services  
Terry Reese
, the Libraries’ Gray Family Chair for Innovative 
Library Services, played a principal role in the development of this innovative 
project. In November 2012, Professor Reese and the Libraries of Oregon 
project team
won an Association of College and Research Libraries ‐ Oregon 
Award for Excellence
for this project.
