José Toribio Medina Award Obrigada, Gracias, Thank you

Dear colleagues, I was too shocked at our opening session to offer an acceptable thank you for honoring “Cite Globally, Analyze Locally: Citation Analysis from a Local Latin American Studies Perspective” with the José Toribio Medina Award. I share the award with a hard working student, Marina Todeschini, who collected an enormous amount of data to help me make a case for Spanish and Portuguese-language book collections at UNM. Claire-Lise Bénaud and Sever Bordeianu were patient editors and wonderful mentors. Marina and I could not have accomplished the research without generous funding from the Latin American and Iberian Institute and the Research Allocations Committee at UNM. We are also grateful to College and Research Libraries’ reviewers and editor, Scott Walter, for taking a chance on a very specifically focused article. Most importantly, we thank the committee and Jesus Alonso-Regalado (and any other unidentified nominator) for finding this article worthy of such distinction. We are humbled and I (Suzanne) am grateful to be part of this community. Obrigadão

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.
