Tim Bucknall, assistant dean of libraries and head of electronic resources and information technologies at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, is the 2014 ACRL Academic/Research Librarian of the Year.

Bucknall is the founder and convener of the Carolina Consortium, an open coalition that enables academic libraries in North Carolina and South Carolina to use their bulk purchasing power to obtain favorable pricing on a variety of electronic resources that are of significant interest to the scholarly community. His work has allowed libraries to maintain a high level of collection quality, unite together to curb inflation in serial costs, and leverage cost and usage data across libraries.
