Faculty and Staff Accomplishments

Mardi McDaniel, Community/University Partnerships, was presented the 2008 HOPE Award given by the American Cancer Society, Santa Rosa Unit, in recognition of exceptional service in the areas of cancer prevention, such as diet, nutrition and lifestyles; control (education and research); and patient support. The award is based on the volunteerís accomplishments, dedication and length of service. The award was presented at the annual dinner.

Ray Uzwyshyn, Digital and Learning Technologies, University Libraries, was invited to author the project briefing feature for the September/October 2008 issue of D-Lib.  The feature was based on a project done in late 2007 for the universityís 40th Anniversary where UWF Digital and Learning Technologies developed a  digital image archive for the library Special Collections and Archives. The image archive has attracted wider attention during the past year for its innovative use of technology and economical open source methodologies and is currently being referred to as The University of West Florida Libraries Model. In the D-Lib project briefing, Repurposing Open Source Software for Agile Digital Image Library Development: The University of West Florida Libraries Model, Uzwyshyn was asked to outline the projectís use of new open source possibilities for digital library development. D-Lib Online is a joint NSF, DARPA, CNRI National Research Initiative, focusing on leading edge digital library R&D and is available in English and in translation at multiple mirror sites around the world.
