NIST honored for library tech

The Library of Congress' Federal Library and Information Center Committee will give awards on March 25 to federal libraries and librarians for outstanding work and technological innovations in 2003.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology Research Library will be recognized as federal library of the year among libraries with 11 or more staff members or contract employees, the Library of Congress committee officials said. The Library Services Department at the Naval Medical Center, in Portsmouth, Va., will be commended as federal library of the year among libraries with 10 or fewer staff members.

Wilma Riley, a library technician at the NIST Research Library, will be named federal library technician of the year. Lillian Woon Gassie, senior systems librarian at the Dudley Knox Library at the Naval Postgraduate School, in Monterey, Calif., will be recognized as federal librarian of the year.

The winners will be commended at a ceremony this week at the Library of Congress.
