Kimberley Dej, Associate Professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Science, and Professor of Information Systems Milena Head from the DeGroote School of Business are two of the recipients to have been presented with Teaching and Academic Librarianship Awards.

The 44th annual awards ceremony, hosted by CBC’s Paul Kennedy, will take place at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto on October 21, 2017.
