MnDOT Library Receives Prestigious Award
By Marilee Tuite
The MnDOT Library won the American Library Association’s (ALA) 2012 John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award for its eye-catching “moving knowledge” campaign to promote its redesigned space, updated resources, and increased outreach efforts. A record 108 libraries applied for the John Cotton Dana Award, which traditionally has been awarded to public and academic libraries. Out of the 8 libraries selected in 2012, MnDOT Library was the only “special library”, special because it focuses primarily on one subject area, transportation and civil engineering.
The highly successful campaign brought a marked increase in users from around the state.
MnDOT Library director Sheila Hatchell received the plaque at the recent ALA conference in Anaheim, CA. The plaque will be proudly displayed in the Library, along with other recent awards for the redesign achievements and “moving knowledge” campaign:
- 2011 Innovation in Action Award from the Special Libraries Association-Minnesota Chapter
- 2010 Award of Merit from the Minnesota Association of Government Communicators
