SIU-Carbondale’s Gorzalski named SAA Emerging Leader

Illinois Association of College & Research Libraries Forum (IACRL)

June 25, 2016

Matt Gorzalski, University Archivist at Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s Morris Library, has been named the 2016 recipient of the Society of American Archivists’ Emerging Leader Award. This is the sixth year that the Award has been presented. The Award recognizes archivists who are relatively new to the profession but have already demonstrated leadership ability, done notable archival work, or provided service to the profession (or a combination of the three). Gorzalski was recognized for his efforts to increase awareness of SIU-Carbondale’s archives, and archival resources more broadly, through classroom instruction and hands-on digitization activities. He has also been heavily active in committee work, including chairing the Society of American Archivists’ Collection Management Tools Roundtable and Career Development Subcommittee. Gorzalski has a substantial scholarly publishing record, with articles having appeared in The American Archivist and Archival Issues, among other publications, and he received an award for an article on reimaging record groups that appeared in Provenance.
