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.

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.
