Our Library employees are winning awards, receiving grants, and earning recognitions. In an effort to help publicize these accomplishments, and to demystify and streamline the process, please see the following set of guidelines.

  • To initiate a request for publicity, employees (or their supervisors) should submit this Awards/Recognitions/Grants Publicity Request Form including information about the award, recognition, or grant.
  • All submissions are forwarded to the Library’s CCO and a Recognizing Excellence blog post is scheduled. The Recognizing Excellence blog features Library employees (all classifications) and the external awards, recognitions, or grants they’ve received or earned. These blog posts are shared in the monthly Library Office Notes (not in separate emails via LIB-NEWS as in the past). A link to this blog is also found on the Library’s Faculty & Staff Achievements page. The Dean of Libraries and University Librarian makes the determination if an award, recognition, or grant gets posted to the Library’s News page and/or wider dissemination is recommended.
  • Fall, Spring, and Summer publications and presentations by Library employees will still be featured in the Recognizing Excellence blog. Calls for those go out separately three times a year via LIB-NEWS.
