Glenn McEvoy Earns USU Library Faculty Award

The Merrill-Cazier library at Utah State University has recognized Glenn McEvoy for his contributions to the library with the Library Faculty Award, a recognition earned by only one faculty member each year.


McEvoy, a management professor in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business, said he was surprised at the award but felt honored to receive it.


“I’m a huge fan of the library,” he said, noting that he has worked with library faculty and staff for a number of years on various things.


Library Associate Dean for Public Services John Elsweiler, said that McEvoy was recognized for a couple of specific reasons.


The first was for the work he did in helping with the library’s strategic planning about eight years ago, Elsweiler said. McEvoy was a consultant and worked with the library through the entire strategic planning process and was instrumental in creating its mission statement.


“(The library) informed me when I won this award that the results of that strategic planning process are still driving what they do,” McEvoy said. “I think that’s pretty impressive because most strategic plans get put on the shelf.”


Secondly, Elsweiler said that McEvoy was given the award for more recent work that he did in helping to pass the university’s Open Access Policy as faculty senate president.


“We shepherded through a pretty dramatic change,” McEvoy said.


The Open Access Policy made it so students and faculty can access published research without subscribing to each journal, McEvoy added.


Elsweiler also noted that McEvoy has always been an ally and friend to the library.


“Glenn is somebody who is a very strong advocate for the university and is someone who has spent his years making sure that the university is well represented and supported,” Elsweiler said. “The Huntsman School of Business is well represented.”
