Timothy Dodge, Reference Librarian, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in library sciences.
Dr. Dodge made the decision to work in libraries after spending a great deal of time in manual labor. His father mentioned to him that he should find a job with more security and on a whim, Dr. Dodge looked toward the library as he enjoyed all the time he spent there as a student. After earning a Bachelor of Arts from Swarthmore College in 1979, he continued at Columbia University to receive a Master of Library Science in 1980, and later on earned a Master of Arts and PhD from the University of New Hampshire. Since 1992, Dr. Dodge has served as a reference librarian at Auburn University. He considers his current appointment as president of the Southeastern Library Association as the highlight of his career thus far. While matriculating as a student, Dr. Dodge worked at the Dimond Library at the University of New Hampshire, the Barry University Library and the Butler Library.
As aforementioned, Dr. Dodge spent a great deal of time working in manual labor. In the 1970s and early 1980s, he took pride in his work as a cemetery maintenance worker for Lee, New Hampshire. In addition, Dr. Dodge has published several works throughout his career, including, “Crime & Punishment in New Hampshire 1812-1914,” “Poor Relief in Durham, Lee & Madbury New Hampshire” and “Rhythm and Blues Goes Calypso” among various other works and contributions. In addition to his post with the Southeastern Library Association, he has been involved with the Alabama Library Association. He has received plaques from the Alabama Library Association and the Alabama Association of College & Research Library. Furthermore, Dr. Dodge has received a professional achievement award from Barry University Library.
