Judith J. Field Inducted into SLA Hall of Fame

June 15, 2010

Judith J. Field, long-time Senior Lecturer for the School of Library and Information Science, was inducted into the Special Libraries Association’s Hall of Fame on June 13, 2010, at the start of the association’s annual conference in New Orleans.  SLA Hall of Fame recognition, reserved for SLA members at or near the end of their active professional careers, recognizes service and contributions to the association. 

Field served as SLA President during 1997-98.  Because of her ongoing effort to mentor her students as well as her professional colleagues in SLA, she was the 2001 recipient of the Rose Vormelker Award for mentoring.  In addition, she served a four-year term on the American Library Association's Committee on Accreditation, representing SLA.

Field joined the faculty at Wayne State in 1993.  She retired from active teaching at the end of the 2009-2010 academic year but remains with the School as its “Professional in Residence.” Field currently serves on the Governing Board of IFLA. 

Congratulations, Professor Field!
