Professor Jill Grogg (MS/ IS ’01) and Associate Professor Jeff Weddle (PhD/ C&I ’03) along with co-worker Beth Ashmore from the University of Alabama recently published The Librarian’s Guide to Negotiation: Winning Strategies for the Digital Age. Against the Grain news channel (ATG) selected it as the book of the week for November 27, 2012. “This book is a great introduction to an important aspect of librarianship. Its practical account of successful negotiations in the library setting is…engaging, and broadly applicable,” wrote Patrick L. Carr, head of electronic & continuing resource acquisitions at East Carolina University.
Grogg received the 2012 UT School of Information Science’s (SIS) Alumni Innovator Award and is a current SIS Advisory Board Member. Weddle received the 2002 SIS Best Doctoral Paper award and is a former SIS Advisory Board Member.
