New Mexico State University Library employee Jenny Lockwood recently received the 2011 Carl Faubion Outstanding Library Staff Employee of the Year Award in a ceremony at Zuhl Library.
Lockwood, a Library Specialist II in the Acquisitions Unit, was recognized for her overall contributions to the Library, particularly in the area of electronic serials. She provided valuable feedback during the selection of the Library’s Electronic Resource Management System and worked with the team that launched the system and the federated search product OneSearch. The implementation of the Electronic Resource Management System was highly dependent on work Jenny had previously completed. Lockwood was also recognized for her ability to recall details from memory and taking the initiative.
The Carl Faubion Award is presented annually to an exempt or non-exempt NMSU Library employee who exemplifies excellence in customer service, exceptional contributions to the library, innovation and creative thinking in problem solving or contributions which have reduced operating costs or resulted in administrative efficiencies.
The award was made possible by former NMSU President James E. Halligan and Mrs. Ann E. Halligan, who established the Carl Faubion Memorial Endowment for the NMSU Library in 2007. The endowment was established in memory of the late Carl Faubion, Mesilla Valley farmer and former NMSU regent.
