Ms. Tamara Lincoln
Associate Professor of Library Science, Emerita
Ms. Tamara Lincoln has served the University of Alaska Fairbanks with distinction in teaching, research and public service from 1976 to 2009.
She has been extolled for her warmth and dedication as a teacher; and has taught students in library science, foreign languages and literatures, and women’s studies; and has facilitated academic exchanges between the University and universities in the Russian Far East.
Her extensive knowledge of the languages, cultures and literatures of the Arctic has contributed to the growth of the University’s academic programs by ensuring that the Rasmuson Library’s Alaska and Polar Regions collection acquired essential materials relating to the circumpolar North; and whose far-reaching network of international associates has been vital in sustaining and enhancing the Library’s position as a preeminent center for the study of the arctic and subarctic regions.
Her linguistic fluency and background in Slavic languages and cultures and her training in library science uniquely prepared her to play key roles in the expansion of contacts with the Russian Far East; and has greatly benefited not only the University but the Nation with her strong personal commitment to creating understanding between Russia and the United States.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks expresses its deep appreciation to Ms. Tamara Lincoln for her contributions to the State of Alaska and the University.
