OSU Associate Professor & Librarian for College Health, Uta Hussong-Christian has been awarded $1,030 to enable her to register for and complete the MLA (Medical Library Association) Systematic Review Services Specialization I Pathway.

The Robert Lundeen Library Faculty Development Award is an important gift to OSULP that has supported innovative and exemplary library faculty project work for many years. The Lundeen Award was established in 2003 by Bob Lundeen, former member of the Libraries’ Advisory Council, and it supports meaningful faculty development through the pursuit of scholarship or through professional capacity building. A committed supporter of his alma mater, Bob Lundeen was employed most of his career at Dow Chemical where he eventually became the chairman of the board. He also was the CEO and board chair of Tektronix. In addition to this award, Bob and his wife Betty established a number of scholarships to benefit Oregon State University students. When Mr. Lundeen passed away in late 2017, OSULP received an additional boost to the existing endowment which means we are able to extend the number and/or amounts of awards as appropriate.

OSULP faculty interested in applying for Lundeen funding may submit their proposals at any time (and this is your reminder!). Applications will be reviewed as they are received.

The 2023-2024 Lundeen Award Committee: Rachel Lilley (Chair), Beth Shields, Hui Zhang, Adam Lindsley, Taylor Ralph, and Hannah Rempel
