The Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Librarianship recognizes consistently superior professional achievement in the field of librarianship.
The Chancellor’s award program refers to Julie Wang as “a tireless advocate for students and faculty in the Department of Asian and Asian American Studies,” adding that “through creativity and ingenuity, she has developed a strong collection in East Asian studies and is known as a global partner in her field.”
Julie holds a bachelor’s degree in Chinese language and literature from Beijing Normal University in China, and an MLS (Master of Library Science) degree from Southern Connecticut State University.
Since joining the Libraries in 2007 as a subject librarian for Asian and Asian and American studies, Julie has persistently, and successfully, sought funding to support the department; including grants from the Nippon Foundation, the Academy of Korean Studies, the Korea Foundation, the Lois B. DeFleur International Innovation Fund and others. Her efforts have greatly enhanced the significance of our University’s East Asian studies collection.
Also active outside of campus, Julie participates in a number of professional organizations and founded both the Southern Tier Chinese School and the Southern Tier Chinese Culture Association.
Congratulations to Julie on her receipt of this prestigious and meaningful award!
