I won the Marquis Who's Who Lifetime Achievement Award

I'd like to thank the numerous students, faculty, and staff whom I served throughout my career as a science/engineering librarian.  I would also like to thank Selenay Aytac of LIU Post, Vitaut Kipel and the late Moritia-Leah Frederick of the New York Public Library, and the late Anne Buck of NJIT for motivating me.

FLUSHING, NY, September 10, 2019 — Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Bruce Slutsky with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Mr. Slutsky celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Mr. Slutsky is a retired science and engineering librarian whose career at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark spanned 25 successful years. During his years at the institute, he was responsible for providing reference service to students of the technical disciplines offered by NJIT. He also instructed students how to effectively use printed and electronic resources to support research and course work.  He officially retired in 2017.
Accumulating four decades of experience in library science in all, Mr. Slutsky came from St. John's University in Jamaica, New York, where he served as head science librarian. He also held appointments in the New York Public Library's science and technology division in New York City and Schering-Plough Corp. in Bloomfield, New Jersey, and was a chemist for three years, working for Rhodia, UOP Fragrances, and Pfizer.  For one semester he was Adjunct Professor at the Palmer School of Library & Information Science teaching a class in Science and Technology Reference.
Further, Mr. Slutsky was active in the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific community, in the Career Consultants Program and its Division of Chemical Information.  Over the years he organized several Careers in Chemical Information workshops to advise chemists of the various career options outside of the laboratory.  He also served as chair of the Division’s Publication Committee and edited its newsletter.
Through the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) Mr. Slutsky organized and sustained a Special Interest Group of Science, Technology and Medical Librarians.  Through meetings and other events, members work to identify and develop effective strategies to promote the interests of professionals working in this area and their library organizations
Mr. Slutsky has contributed numerous articles to various professional journals in his area of expertise. He recently published "Nobel, Priestley, and Perkin Medal Winners in Chemistry: Their Publication Productivity for the Years 1992-2016" with co-author Selenay Aytac of LIU Post, which has since been released in 2017 in Science and Technology libraries.
Since he has retired, Mr. Slutsky has been active in the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).  He wrote a few articles for the Society’s Games Project and serves as the coordinator of fact-checking for that endeavor.  He applies his library skills to the society’s Baseball Index, an ongoing project of the Society to catalog the entirety of baseball literature, from the earliest references to the present day.
An alumnus of the City College of New York, Mr. Slutsky received a Bachelor of Science in chemistry in 1972. He soon after attended the University of Rhode Island, where he earned a Master of Science in chemistry in 1974. Following these accomplishments, he concluded his studies with a Master of Science in library sciences from Pratt Institute in 1982. In an effort to remain up to date with developments in his field, Mr. Slutsky maintains professional affiliation with the American Chemical Society. A celebrated Marquis listee, he has been included in the 27th edition of Who's Who in the East and the 54th edition of Who's Who in America
