Carol Elsen: Reviewer of the Year!

photo of 2011 Nonfiction Reviewer of the Year Carol ElsenOur very own Carol Elsen, Collection Manager and Reference & Instruction Librarian, was named one of Library Journal‘s five 2011 Reviewers of the Year!

Here’s what LJ had to say about her:

Carol Elsen, 2011 Nonfiction Reviewer of the Year

Elsen, collection manager and reference librarian at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, has been an LJ reviewer in business and social sciences for eight years. For her verve, her playful sense of language, her effective assessments of a spectrum of titles, and for coming through with reviews that barely need an edit, she is all too deserving of this honor.

We agree! You can read some of Carol’s book reviews through the Academic Search Complete database. Some of the books are available from UWW’s Andersen Library (search HALcat, the Harold Andersen Library catalog) or from other UW libraries (search the UW libraries; requests are free for UWW students and staff via Universal Borrowing).

Congratulations Carol!
