Nicolette Warisse Sosulski, this year’s winner of the Gale Cengage Learning Award for Excellence in Business Librarianship, is flanked by two of her proud nominators: Tera Moon (left) and Deb Thomas (right).
Our committee performed its work virtually, and selected a 2011 winner for the BRASS Gale Cengage Learning Award for Excellence in Business Librarianship: Nicolette Warisse Sosulski, business librarian at the Portage District Library in Portage, Michigan. Now we just had the final thrilling task of meeting her and applauding as she received her award at the RUSA award ceremony at ALA Annual in New Orleans.
Fellow committee member Bobray Bordelon and I were fortunate enough to attend the RUSA awards ceremony in the lovely and elegant Hotel Monteleone, and it was an inspiring and delightful experience to see all of those talented librarians be recognized! What a satisfying culmination of our committee’s hard work. It was also great to meet some of Sosulski’s supporters, nominators, and well-wishers. It was a wonderful evening.
If you would like to hear from our winner speak about her work and her experiences at ALA, here is a link to an interview done with her in New Orleans, appropriately filmed at Café du Monde: http://bit.ly/r5Hrbk
