Greta Marlatt

The HSDL is proud to announce that our own Greta Marlatt is the recipient of the 2012 I Love My Librarian Award! This award, presented by the New York Times and the Carnegie Corporation, recognizes the nation’s top librarians. Tonight, Greta is attending a gala reception where she will receive a plaque, a $5,000 award, and a $500 travel stipend.

This award came as no surprise to those who know Greta. As Content Manager for the HSDL, she works tirelessly to ensure that the our collection has the most timely and relevant documents possible. She also provides support to students and faculty of the Center for Homeland Defense and Security. Additionally, Greta does an excellent job of promoting the services provided by the HSDL in her travels across the country. Greta is also being recognized for her role as Outreach and Collection Development Manager for the Naval Postgraduate School’s Dudley Knox Library.

Greta was nominated by several of her colleagues. CHDS Executive Director Ted Lewis was one of many who was impressed by her work. He wrote that “Greta is the heart and soul of the Homeland Security Digital Library and person behind ‘Ask a Librarian’, which is very successful. Her upbeat attitude and 24 x 7 availability have charmed thousands of students in various programs. She has a reputation for competent and fast responses to all kinds of queries. Amazing!” More praise for Greta can be found here.
