"My hat tip goes to Danny Strong who is an awesome Co-Worker!! He is a person that many of us within the office will seek help from for IT/computer related issues- as he is a technology wiz. I also greatly appreciate the help he offered to get me settled in a new office- he gave up most of his morning to reconfigure office furniture and set up my computer. He wears many hats in the office, and deserves more than a tip of the hat- as he is very hard-working! Thanks Danny- you are awesome!!"

"My hat tip goes to Stephen Boss, Mark Roller, Jun Li, Mike Obenchain, and Kasi White. These folks support specialized technology systems and web services at the UW Libraries.

Many thanks!"
