Two U.S. federal libraries and two federal librarians will be recognized by the Library of Congress Federal Library and Information Network (FEDLINK) in a ceremony next week. The honorees were announced in a May 15 press release.
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Research Library is singled out for its “leadership role in initiating new data services (including sophisticated data-discovery tools) and its rapidly growing data-reference service.”
The RAF Alconbury Base Library, 423d Force Support Squadron, U.S. Air Force, Huntingdon, England, is recognized for outstanding service in support of the base’s 38 education degrees offered by five accredited schools.
Joyce C. Greene, George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, is FEDLINK’s 2012 Federal Librarian of the Year.
