James Lin Receives 16th Annual Ishimoto Award
James Lin, head of technical services in the Harvard–Yenching Library, is the recipient of this year's Carol Ishimoto Award for Distinguished Service in the Harvard College Library.
An endowment established in 1991 by Carol Ishimoto, former associate librarian of Harvard College for cataloging and processing, annually provides a cash award and citation for creative professional achievement of a high order. The award recognizes a member of the professional staff who has advanced the mission of the College Library through exceptional contributions and leadership.
Lin was selected as this year's honoree in recognition of his exemplary leadership of technical services at Harvard–Yenching during the last ten years and his unwavering "can-do" attitude throughout all of the major projects he and his team have undertaken.
"The changes that have been accomplished through Mr. Lin's leadership in technical services are evident to all those who regularly use the Harvard–Yenching Library, whether they are carrying out their research onsite or remotely," said Nancy M. Cline, Roy E. Larsen Librarian of Harvard College.
