This award celebrates outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff across the nation. Since Julie Cornett was hired in 2010, she has brought a new dimension to library services for all students and for all modalities of instruction at the college. Library resources have moved swiftly into the online environment, and Julie has developed digital library resources, both open resources and paid subscriptions, for student and faculty use. She piloted an embedded librarian project within specific courses that provides students with direct instruction in online resources and research skills. As Cerro Coso seeks to improve the student experience at the college through the Achieving the Dream (ATD) Model, Julie is serving as the lead for the ATD Data Team exploring how the college can be made better through identified, scalable services and pedagogical practices.
