Congratulations to Roberto Delgadillo, Vice-President/President-Elect!

Message from the President                                                          

 Congratulations to Roberto Delgadillo, Vice-President/President-Elect!

Roberto makes all of us proud because of his ability and dedication to being a first-rate librarian.

Those of us who know him were not at all surprised by the description of his professionalism, dedication, and commitment to excellence, which was included in Roberto’s nomination to the I Love My Librarian Award.

His passion and love for knowledge, combined with his infectious sense of humor are not only motivational but also inspirational to his students, staff and colleagues at the University Library, UC Davis, where he works as the Social Sciences and Government Information Services Resources Manager.

He is able to make an otherwise difficult job relatively easier as he navigates and employs the logistics of the larger academic world through research, publishing and information seeking.

Roberto’s winning the I Love My Librarian Award is a testimony to his hard work, professional care and, above all, his remarkable approach to life.  His emphasis on the significance of mentorship, especially but not exclusively to the younger generations, is particularly meaningful to the human aspect of our profession as twenty-first century librarians.  As technology rapidly advances, there is an increasing tendency in library systems to undervalue the human factor.  Librarians like Roberto are viable reminders of the relevance of the human element in the current library world in which the rapid change in technology often overshadows the warmth of the personal face-to-face approach.

The SALALM organization congratulates you, Roberto, for your well-deserved award given by The Carnegie Corporation of New York / New York Times in recognition of your exceptional accomplishments as a university librarian.

 

We are proud of having such a remarkable friend and colleague in our midst.
