The Syracuse University Libraries Assembly (SULA) Distinguished Service Award Selection Panel has awarded the Libraries’ 2015 Distinguished Service Award to Bevan Angier, a supervisor in Access and Resource Sharing. This peer-selected award recognizes Bevan for her contributions to Syracuse University Libraries and to the broader Syracuse University community.
Bevan has served in a variety of roles in both Carnegie and Bird libraries over her twenty years at Syracuse University. She is held in high regard by co-workers and colleagues, as evidenced by letters of nomination that commented on her collegiality, professionalism, and effectiveness. One letter of nomination noted, “Her directions are clear, her attitude is positive, and she is very willing to help as needed.”
Also mentioned was her dedication to service to SU faculty and students, as well as to the community. Bevan played a pivotal role in establishing the Libraries’ “Food for Fines” and Holiday Sharing programs.
Members of the 2015 selection panel were Tasha Cooper (chair), Nicolette A. Dobrowolski, Patrick Midtlyng, Stephen Singer, and William Vogel.
Bevan will be retiring at the end of December and will be sorely missed. Her name will be added to the engraved list of Distinguished Service Award recipients on a plaque in Bird Library.
