Dobrowolski, Head of Public Services and Reference Librarian for the Special Collections Research Center, and Bill Vogel, Library Technician in Access and Resource Sharing. This award recognizes service to SU Libraries and the Syracuse University community.

Bill is described in his letters of nomination as an “exemplary employee” with “…unwavering dedication to service…” who consistently exemplifies “…care, patience and good humor.”
Recipients of this award are nominated by Libraries’ employees, and selected by an awards panel. Members of the panel for 2014 were Shannon Pritting (chair), Tasha Cooper, Patrick Midtlyng, Sophie Rondeau, and Stephen Singer.
