The Illinois News Bureau has released "University Librarian Recognized for Achievements in Library Automation."

Here's an excerpt:

"He managed the partnership with Google to digitize the University of Michigan's collection, eventually leading to the foundation of the HathiTrust. As executive director of the HathiTrust, John established a model for shared governance and large-scale collaboration that secured sharing provisions for member libraries," [Bruce] Johnson said. "In his current role as university librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, John continues to lead innovation efforts, particularly in the area of research data curation. All of these achievements have had far-reaching impact in the library profession and beyond, providing a foundation for transformation in publishing, research and unprecedented access to digital content."
