According to their website, The IBM Faculty Awards is a competitive worldwide program intended to:
- Foster collaboration between researchers at leading universities worldwide and those in IBM research, development and services organizations
- Promote courseware and curriculum innovation to stimulate growth in disciplines and geographies that are strategic to IBM.
This is the second year running that Mr. Jones has been honored thus, and we are excited to be a part of an effort at collaboration and innovation. Jones said of the award:
“This money will help us set the future directions for ibiblio services and to explore new partnerships.”
We at ibiblio thank IBM for the recognition, and are excited to bring what we have to offer to the open source community to the next level.
