Plank Receives Statewide Award

Posted in Announcements Tagged with:

Elissa S. Plank, Student/Circulation Supervisor in Middleton’s Government Documents and Microforms Department, is this year’s winner of the Louisiana Library Association’s (LLA) Lucy B. Foote Award. The award goes to an LLA member who works with library special collections and who has “made an outstanding contribution to the library profession.”

Ms. Foote, for whom the award is named, was during her lifetime (1893-1973) a Louisiana special collections librarian, a documents librarian, a head of cataloging at LSU, and compiler of the “Official Publications of the State of Louisiana, 1803-1934.”

Congratulations, Elissa!

Sigrid Kelsey is the Director of Library Communications and Publications at the LSU Libraries.
