Azusa Tanaka, Japanese Studies Librarian at the East Asia Library, was recently awarded the title of “Innovator” in the 2019 Edition of the Library Journal’s Movers & Shakers Awards. From the LJ Movers & Shakers website:
The 54 individuals honored here—in 50 profiles—are powerful. That word might not jump to mind when many people think about librarians, but it is apt. It captures not only the 2019 Movers’ distinctive contributions to the field and their impact but also the power they foster in the people they serve. They give patrons the intellectual, emotional, and technological tools to become their best selves. They provide solutions to move the needle on critical issues such as literacy and health, race, social justice, and gender bias.
