Jenny’s commitment to collaboration within OCUL has spanned numerous roles, from past Chair of the OCUL Map Group and the Scholars GeoPortal Project Management Group, to current Chair of the Operations groups for Scholars GeoPortal and <odesi> and a sitting member of the Scholars Portal Operations & Development Committee (SPOD). The jury agreed that Jenny’s “collaborative approach and outstanding organizational skills” allowed her to lead her colleagues through the development and deployment of the Scholars GeoPortal and significantly strengthen OCUL’s relationships with the health data community, fostering opportunities for the future development of OCUL’s data collections and discovery tools.

Our congratulations and thanks to Jenny Marvin.
