UC Riverside’s Outreach and Public Services Librarian, Robin M. Katz, along with Julie Golia, her project partner at Brooklyn Historical Society, were recognized for the excellence of their work on TeachArchives.org. The award ceremony was held in Colorado at the Sheraton Downtown Denver on Jan. 4, during the AHA Annual Convention.

The women received a three-year grant for the US Department of Education through the Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE).  They used the grant to support a program called Students and Faculty in the Archives (SAFA).

Katz said she hopes to expand on her work with TeachArchives through the instruction project that she is helping to build by bringing this new method of primary source instruction to Special Collections & University Archives.
