K-State Libraries accepting nominations for two employee awards

Submitted by Sarah McGreer Hoyt

Several awards recognize outstanding K-State Libraries employees, and two award committees are accepting online nominations through Wednesday, Feb. 13.

The Brice G. Hobrock Distinguished Faculty Award is sponsored by the Friends of the K-State Libraries. It recognizes outstanding librarianship and accomplishments among the Libraries' faculty. Past winners have been selected for their superior scholarship, service to Kansas State University or involvement in the library profession.

Eligible nominees will be evaluated based on their professional activities during the last two academic years. Check the list of eligible librarians and submit your nomination via a brief form.

If you have questions about the Hobrock Award, contact Cliff Hight, chair of the selection committee, at chight@k-state.edu or 785-532-7456.

The Dean's Award recognizes a professional staff member who has made exceptional contributions to K-State Libraries in the past two academic years.

A list of eligible staff and an online nomination form are available at the Dean's Award website. Evaluation criteria include teamwork, creativity, distinguished accomplishment, leadership, service and productivity. Commenting on these areas is helpful but not required.

If you have questions about the Dean's Award, contact Mary Bailey, chair of the selection committee, at redhead@k-state.edu or 785-532-3517.
