Adam Matthew Digital is pleased to share the news that Maureen Russell, with whom we worked closely to publish Ethnomusicology: Global Field Recordings, has been named 2021 Librarian of the Year by Librarians Association of the University of California-Los Angeles.

Throughout our project collaboration, Maureen’s deep commitment to facilitating scholarship was always at the forefront of our encounters. Over decades, she has managed and protected an important collection of primary source material for researchers and we were honoured to play a part in realising her mission in increasing accessibility for a global audience.
