McMullen Receives 12th Annual Carol Ishimoto Award

Heather McMullen, social sciences data librarian, Numeric Data Services, received the 12th annual Carol Ishimoto Award for Distinguished Service in the Harvard College Library (HCL). McMullen helped to build the social sciences collection of CD-ROMs, DVDs, and web resources and aided in making these accessible on HCL Research Work Stations and the HCL Local Area Network. Reaching beyond HCL, McMullen provided course-related instruction for FAS departments, the Harvard Business School, and the Kennedy School. She also worked with the Harvard-MIT Data Center (HMDC) to create the Virtual Data Center and HMDC web site.

Nancy Cline, Roy E. Larsen Librarian of Harvard College, remarked, "Heather has broken new ground with services relating to numeric databases. She possesses the ability to bring people together to solve problems. Her work has helped us to revitalize reference services in the social sciences."

An endowment established in 1991 by Carol Ishimoto, former associate librarian of Harvard College for cataloging and processing, provides an annual cash award and citation for creative professional achievement of a high order by a member of the HCL professional staff who has advanced the mission of the College Library through exceptional contributions and leadership.
