Linda Smith Griffin, Head of Cataloging at LSU Libraries, is the 2014 recipient of the Louisiana Library Association (LLA) Anthony H. Benoit Mid-Career Award, presented annually to a member in the middle of his or her career to recognize outstanding contributions to the field of librarianship. Griffin received the award on March 26 at the annual LLA Conference in Lafayette, LA. Award Chair Melinda Matthews said, “The committee chose Ms. Griffin because of her excellent credentials as a librarian, her numerous scholarly publications and her active participation in professional activities.”

Griffin’s publications include a chapter in Handbook of Black Librarianship and journal articles about cataloging, outreach programs in academic libraries, and scholarly resources for African and African American Studies. In addition to LLA, Griffin is a member of the American Library Association (ALA) and two of its divisions: Association of College & Research Libraries and Association for Library Collections & Technical Services. She has served as a representative to North American Serials Interest Group since 2010 and has chaired several ALA interest groups associated with cataloging.

As Dr. Beth Paskoff, Director of Louisiana State University School of Library & Information Science states, “Linda Smith Griffin has been recognized by honor societies, student groups and other organizations for her service. It is time for her to be recognized by her professional colleagues in Louisiana.”

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