Our congratulations to Kelly!

Kelly Denzer, NISO Plus 2021 Scholarship Winner

We are delighted to announce that one of the first (2020) cohort of NISO Plus scholarship winners has been awarded the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) Emerging Leader Award for 2021. Kelly Denzer, Collections Strategist and Discovery Librarian at Davidson College, NC, has been involved with SSP for several years. She was selected as an SSP Fellow in 2015, and subsequently joined the Career Development Committee, including serving as Co-Chair for the past two years.

Writing in support of Kelly's nomination, her manager, Matthew R Ballard noted that: " Kelly models exceptional leadership qualities that the Library consistently draws upon. During her time at Davidson, the Library has experienced several reorganizations and as a result her position has shifted between various teams. She has demonstrated resiliency throughout that process and has remained open to new ways of approaching challenges. Kelly approaches the entirety of her work with a collaborative mindset, relying on her strengths of input and relator to gather ideas from across stakeholders and build relationships."

Please join us in congratulating Kelly on this impressive achievement!
