Ruby Nugent, University of Colorado Health Sciences Library technician on the Anschutz Medical Campus, is being awarded the 2010 Lucy Schweers Award for Excellence in Paralibrarianship by the Colorado Association of Libraries (CAL).
Nugent has been an active member of the association for years, providing leadership and service to the business of CAL and carrying forth expertise in library services throughout the state. The award is given annually to library support staff who advance and strengthen the image of the library profession and demonstrate pride and excellence in their library services expertise.
Nugent has been with the Health Sciences Library since 2008, and works in the access services department serving Anschutz Medical Campus students and faculty.
"Being part of the Colorado library community for more than 10 years as support staff has really given me the chance to collaborate, network and grow in my chosen field in a positive way," Nugent said. "I am fortunate to have worked with amazing peers and supportive leadership during my journey through my library career."
Nugent will receive the award at the CAL Awards Banquet in October.
