KUDOS recipients for fall quarter 2018: Dennis Vice, Jessica Geiser and Joanne Austin
December 13, 2018

At all-staff meetings held in fall quarter 2018, Library Human Resources acknowledged three UCR Library employees for their outstanding contributions.

These team members became the fourth round of employees to be recognized through the KUDOS program.

Under the KUDOS program, non-probationary staff and academic employees at the UCR Library can be nominated by a peer for actions or contributions related to the UCR Library's mission that have a significant, positive impact on colleagues, library users, or others.

Nominations were submitted anonymously by library non-probationary staff and academic employees, and then were reviewed by members of Library Cabinet to determine which staff members would receive the KUDOS awards.

The fall quarter 2018 recipients received the following comments on their nomination forms:

Dennis Vice, Client Support Engineer

"Armed with a calm and professional demeanor, Dennis never hesitates to provide expert assistance to his colleagues at a moment's notice, often rushing across campus to address a problem. Dennis exemplifies what it means to be a team player."

Jessica Geiser, Collections Management Librarian

"Jessica is an exemplary colleague. Giving good access to materials is a crucial piece of the library's mission, and Jessica's work serves this goal in many ways. Her work ethic, ability as a team player, willingness to step up when it's needed, and all-around good sense make her a joy to work with."

Joanne Austin, Course Reserves Coordinator

"Joanne demonstrated good judgment, timely action, and professional customer service in communicating library policies and responding to a faculty request. Thank you, Joanne!"

Please join us in celebrating these library employees’ achievements!
