Shout-outs From My Colleagues
Shout-outs are kind words from Libraries staff to other Libraries staff for going out of their way to be extra awesome at their job.
The Visualization Gallery has become a hub for incredible research, instruction, and exploration, and this has been in large part to the work of Colin Keenan. He has brought expertise, skill, and enthusiasm to the space and helped explore and pursue amazing projects. His work with the Susan Ellen Everett interns produced remarkable results which will have a positive impact for many others in the space, and I've come to rely on his expertise and curiosity for so many other projects. Even beyond the Gallery, I'm grateful to Colin's willingness to help out with strange new projects and his enthusiasm for tackling new challenges.
