METRO was very pleased that one of the individual award winners was a member of the NYC LIS community, Dr. Anthony Cocciolo, Assistant Professor at Pratt Institute. Anthony was recognized specifically for his work partnering classes with archival institutions to work on the digitization and digital preservation of analog audio collections. On behalf of the METRO community we congratulate Anthony, who has also been an instructor at several past METRO workshops.
