Two Murray State University librarians received awards for their work with University Libraries, the university announced Wednesday.

Instruction Librarian Dana Stratton Thompson received the International Visual Literacy Association (ILVA) Education Award for her research in visual literacy education.

The school said Thompson has researched visual literacy initiatives and worked to create the "Recommended Reads for Visual Literacy" bibliography and used new innovations to teach critical evaluation of images.

Scholarly Communication Librarian AJ Boston was awarded a fellowship with the Library Publishing Coalition. That fellowship program, awarded only twice each two years, expands access to library publishing for underrepresented groups and mentors new library publishers, the school said.

Boston's work with the school's Office of Research and Creative Activity and his management of the institution's digital commons contributed to his receiving the award.
