Jocelyn A. Rankin Student Excellence in Library Research Award

The Jocelyn A. Rankin Student Excellence in Library Research Award recognizes a Mercer University School of Medicine (MUSM) student who demonstrates outstanding proficiency in the use of the Libraries' collections, services and resources, and exceptional information-seeking literacy skills. The intent of the Award is to promote extensive and meaningful use of library resources and services, and to foster the development of life-long learning in students.

The award honors Jocelyn A. Rankin, PhD, founder and director of the Medical Library on the Macon campus and founder of GaIN (Georgia Interactive Network for Medical Information), the Mercer University-based electronic healthcare nonprofit that was active from 1983-2015. Dr. Rankin's tireless service to MUSM students and faculty as well as Georgia's underserved health professionals (1974-2000), exemplified passion and commitment to information access, problem-based learning, scholarship and research.
