Hahn Wins Award for Article

Jim Hahn, orientation services librarian in the Undergraduate Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has been chosen as an Outstanding Paper Award Winner at the Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence 2010.  The award is for his article entitled “On the remediation of Wikipedia to the iPod” published in the Reference Services Review (RSR) journal.  Award-winning papers are chosen following consultation amongst the journal’s Editorial Team–many of whom are eminent academics or managers.  Hahn will receive a certificate and be honored at an upcoming conference.
