Regina Beard, business librarian with the K-State Libraries, was one of five recipients of the Special Libraries Association's 2009 Diversity Leadership Development Program Award. The award was given at the association conference June 17, in Washington, D.C.
The Diversity Leadership Development Program Award was developed by the association to help accelerate the advancement of members who represent the group's diversity.
Beard worked in banking for more than 15 years before making a professional change, a decision prompted, in part, by impending layoffs. Upon graduation from Clark Atlanta University, Beard relocated to Kansas and took a position as a librarian. She became K-State's economics librarian in 2005, going on to become business librarian in 2008.
The Special Libraries Association is a nonprofit global organization for innovative information professionals and their strategic partners.
Each award winner receives a $1,000 cash prize and is assigned a career development mentor.
