New Video: A Tribute to Wendy Pradt Lougee
The video embedded below was shared on YouTube earlier today by the University of Minnesota Libraries.
Wendy Pradt Lougee is retiring February 27, 2020, after more than 17 years as University Librarian and Dean of Libraries at the University of Minnesota. Throughout her career, Lougee has been at the forefront nationally — developing a number of programs, initiatives, and policies that have revolutionized academic librarianship, particularly in the area of innovation and technology, which earned her the American Library Association’s prestigious Hugh Atkinson award. In this video, several of Lougee’s colleagues pay tribute to her contributions to the library profession and to the University of Minnesota.
