Molly Molloy Awarded the 2011 José Toribio Medina Award


This morning at the opening ceremony for SALALM’s 56th annual conference Molly Molloy, librarian at New Mexico State University, was honored with the 2011 José Toribio Medina Award. The award recognizes Molly’s outstanding work with the Frontera-List.

Victor Federico Torres, chair of the committee, noted that the list “has been hailed as the most comprehensive, up-to-date source of narco-related violence on the U.S.-Mexico Border” and used widely by congressional staff, US and Mexican human rights groups and many other Border observers. Torres added, “this electronic resource fills a much needed information gap on a subject of both scholarly research and binational concerns.”

Molly Molloy is well known, not only as a librarian committed to her immediate user constituency but also as human rights activist on Border issues. Her work has been featured by the Wall Street Journal, In These Times, and National Public Radio.

¡Felicidades! Un honor muy merecido.
