Rebecca Hamilton, state librarian, received LSU College of Human Sciences and Education’s School of Library and Information Science Community Partner Award. The award, introduced this year, recognizes partners for their collaboration and support through activities and projects that enhance the exchange, exploration and application of knowledge, information and resources.
Hamilton was nominated by SLIS for her collaborative spirit, inspiring leadership and strong advocacy on behalf of the college. “This is really a State Library award because without my staff we wouldn’t accomplish the things that we do,” Hamilton said. “They get out there and make things happen and have worked hard building partnerships and being advocates for all of our clients.”
“Established during its initial year of operation, the College of Human Sciences and Education Awards honors distinguished alumni, supporters, faculty and staff who drive the mission of CHSE through their gifts, talents and time,” Damon Andrew, CHSE dean, said.
Hamilton became state librarian in 2005.
