Publications, Presentations, and Exhibits

Pam Kruger (Meriam Library Special Collections) published a pair of chapters in different books that published this year. “Testimony and Tenacity: Rapid-response Collecting the Pandemic” in Managing Crises in the Academic Library: Past, Present and Future, in which Kruger and her co-authors discuss the approaches that four CSU libraries took to document the COVID-19 pandemic experiences. Additionally, Kruger co-authored a chapter titled “Let’s Take a Moment: Student Reflections and Reframing Research as a Journey” that appeared in Exploring Inclusive & Equitable Pedagogies: Creating Space for All Learners. Kruger and co-author Zohra Saulat—who was once a librarian at Chico State and is now at Lake Forest College—offer a case study of information literacy sessions conducted from the spring of 2020 through the 2020–21 academic year.

Awards, Honors, and Activities

At last week’s San Francisco State Invitational in Golden Gate Park, sophomore Della Molina notched her third top-5 finish—and it was enough for her to earn the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Women’s Cross Country Runner of the Week honor. Molina led all CCAA runners and placed fifth, leading the Wildcats to the narrow team victory (57–59) over Concordia.

Another first-place finish for junior Daniel Hernandez equated to another CCAA Men’s Cross Country Runner of the Week honor. In winning the San Francisco State Invitational, Hernandez was one of six Wildcats to finish in the top 10 and led the Wildcats to a convincing team victory.

Junior goalkeeper Emanuel Padilla is playing nearly lights out for the Chico State men’s soccer team—his brilliance between the pipes has earned him his third CCAA Men’s Soccer Defender of the Week recognition. After Padilla allowed two goals in a 2-2 tie at Cal Poly Pomona, he notched a 1-0 win at Cal State San Bernardino—both nationally ranked teams.
