Gonzaga Mission Award goes to ATAS! Read about it here. November 17, 2014

Posted by gonzagalibrary in Uncategorized.

Brenda Warrington and Paula Foster, two long time Foley Library staff who run the ATAS department, were honored at the Fall Staff Assembly meeting with the Mission Award in recognition of their outstanding service to the mission of Gonzaga University.

ATAS stands for “Academic Technology Applications Support”.  Brenda and Paula support a diverse range of software for the entire campus community, including Foliotek digital portfolio platform, TracDat online assessment system and Turnitin originality checker and online grading system.  They run their department with a great deal of care for all they serve and take joy in their service to the university.

We would like to congratulate Brenda and Paula for their stellar performance and for this well deserved recognition!


Here is what the Gonzaga Staff Assembly had to say about Brenda and Paula:

“This Mission Award is unique in that it is presented to two people. 15 Gonzaga University employees, representing a wide range of departments across the university – including staff and faculty members and administrators – were compelled to nominate these two individuals.

Employed with the university since 1994 and 1997, these two individuals provide exceptional support, training and first-rate service in academic technology to hundreds of members of the Gonzaga University community. In one academic year alone, they worked with faculty in every college and school, and with staff in every office and department within the division of Student Development. They have truly transformed how faculty and staff obtain information and support related to questions of academic technology.

While working as a synergetic team and like a well-oiled machine, this dynamic duo always offers welcoming smiles, can-do attitudes, patience and a high level of approachability. As exemplary women for others, they embody servant leadership and quickly win the trust and respect of those they work with. Through their work, they have advanced the assessment goals and strategies for the division of Student Development, have raised the technological performance of the entire university, and have made many faculty members’ work more pleasant.

As one of them currently fights through cancer treatment, the other honors her co-worker’s faith, strength and determination by managing the department with gusto, carrying on without a misstep in the stride or commitment and mission-oriented service the two have selflessly given to the university.

It is with great pleasure that I present this Mission Award to Brenda Warrington and Paula Foster of Academic Technology Applications Support.”

At the end of Summer Session I on June 27, 2014, the Research Guides system will be upgraded. The majority of the content at researchguides.gonzaga.edu will remain the same. As always, the Research Guides will act as a bridge into our physical and digital collections. The upgrade will result in slight changes to the look and feel of all the guides. As an example, a page on Foley’s current International Studies Guide (researchguides.gonzaga.edu/internationalstudies) may look like this:



For questions about the upgrade or electronic resources, contact:

Adrian Pauw, Electronic Resources Coordinator Librarian @ Foley Center Library
