Congratulations are in order for one of my former University of Maryland MLS professors, Dr. Paul Jaeger, who earned the 2014 excellence in teaching award from the Library Journal/Association for Library and Information Science Education.

John Berry’s article covering Dr. Jaeger is a must read.

Jaeger’s enthusiasm for the profession is fantastic. Here is what he says at the end of Berry’s article. “I love to teach. I really feel strongly about the things I work at. I get to do research in and teach about things that matter. I don’t do research that doesn’t have practical use. The nexus of what we do is really about rights and justice, about access, preservation, education, literacy, employment help, unity building, inclusion, helping with social services. All these things are acts of promoting life and justice in your community.”
