imageBryant Moore, reference librarian, recently was named the winner of the second annual FYE Innovation Award for outstanding achievements in first-year experience programming. Each year, Credo Reference and Case Western Reserve University's Kelvin Smith Library recognize one librarian and one library to receive a prize of $1,500 and an award plaque honoring their outstanding achievement. Credo partnered with the Kelvin Smith Library last year to launch the awards in an effort to call attention to the enterprising work being done by librarians who support first-year students.

Moore distinguished himself through his use of fun and interactive programming to help students overcome their library anxiety while learning valuable research and information literacy skills. From playing Library Jeopardy during instruction sessions to inserting a secret challenge into the library's online information literacy tutorial, Moore has made student engagement and outreach a priority. Moore will be formally recognized in April at the 2019 Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Conference in Cleveland, Ohio.
