John Cotton Dana Library
Public Relations Award

The New Mexico State University Library received the John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award, the most prestigious award offered by the American Library Association (ALA), in 2001. Sponsored by the H.W. Wilson Company and the ALA Library Administration and Management Association Public Relations Section, the award honored the Library for its "Dino-mite campaign, which capitalized on the public relations power of the dinosaur skull 'Stan,' the most popular attraction on campus, by celebrating a $3 million naming gift for Zuhl Library and by honoring the donors."

Hi, my name is Stan! This is the story
of how I came to be the "Spokes-Dinosaur"
for the New Mexico State University Library!
