Our own Harrison Inefuku has just been recognized nationally for his contributions to the archival profession!

Harrison is this year’s Mark A. Greene Emerging Leader Award recipient.

This award recognizes early-career archivists who have made substantial contributions beyond their own institution, demonstrated leadership in the profession, and who have been proponents of outreach and advocacy on behalf of the profession.

Now in his sixth year of professional practice, Harrison has already chaired several committees and sections of the Society of American Archivists, as well as his service in the Midwest Archives Conference (including his current role on Council). He is known nationally and internationally as an advocate for “thinking archivally” about institutional repositories and library publishing. He has been a persistent and passionate advocate for the infusion of social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion, into library and archives practices, particularly in the areas of scholarly communication and institutional repositories.

His nominees noted his vision, collegiality, and initiative and commended him on his work with recruitment and retention initiatives for archivists from underrepresented groups.

We are proud to work with him.
