Ted Mulvey MLIS ’11 recently received an Outstanding Service Award from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Mulvey was one of many staff members who were recognized for their contributions at the annual Opening Day Convocation Sept. 6. 

Mulvey is the Information Literacy Librarian at Polk Library on campus. He earned a bachelor's degree in music from DePaul University and a master's degree in library and information science from Dominican University. 

Below is the excerpt about Mulvey from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh press release:
"When it comes to research, many don't know where to begin-this is where Ted Mulvey comes to the rescue. As the information literacy librarian, Mulvey teaches students, as well as instructors, how to use information resources-databases, journals, websites and more-efficiently, wisely and creatively. Mulvey consistently goes above and beyond to assist students with generating ideas, refining searches or tracking down sources. His friendliness and expertise help students learn critical-thinking skills needed to succeed in the classroom and beyond. Mulvey's dedication extends into his work with faculty and staff. He attends evening staff meetings, serves on search and screen committees and collaborates on professional development. He has assisted in scholarly presentations, and he is co-authoring an article with a faculty member about first-year writing students and information literacy. His work with various faculty members contributes to the excellent reputation of the library across campus. Mulvey played a lead role in integrating the library with the University Studies Program, including the creation of ANVIL-an interactive, trivia-style game that teaches concepts associated with information literacy. He also evaluates and assesses University services for teaching and learning for the Higher Learning Commission reaccreditation process. Mulvey is active in his profession, serving at the executive level of two national Association of College and Research Library committees."
