Libraries win National Award of Excellence

The UMN-Twin Cities Libraries have received the 2009 Excellence in Academic Libraries award. This award, presented by the American Library Association (ALA)/Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), recognizes the accomplishments of library staff “as they come together as members of a team to support the mission of their institution.”

See the ALA press release about this award http://www.ala.org/ala/newspresscenter/news/pressreleases2009/january2009/acrlexcellence1.cfm. The actual award is to be presented by the President of ACRL (Erika Linke of Carnegie Mellon University) at a campus wide celebration ceremony to be planned for sometime in spring.
