Health Sciences Libraries Associate Director Recognized for Service to the Medical Library Association
Linda M. G. Katz, Associate Director of Drexel’s Health Sciences Libraries, completed six years of service as the editor of the Medical Library Association (MLA) publication, MLA News, in December 2011.
“Editing MLA News has been one of the highlights of my experiences as a librarian,” Katz said. “During the six years of my editorship, I’ve worked hard, learned a great deal, and have been rewarded with kind appreciation from MLA members and staff.”
Since 1961, MLA News has been distributed ten times per year and delivers news of the association and related content to its membership. Founded in Philadelphia in 1898, the association is a nonprofit educational organization of more than 1,100 institutions and 3,600 individual members in the health sciences information field.
In a recent letter sent by the MLA President Gerald Perry, on behalf of its Board of Directors and membership, Perry recognized Katz’s dedication. “While serving as Editor, you have demonstrated the highest standards of professionalism. Editors and staff report that your super-efficient work ethic and strong editing skills have resulted in meeting deadlines ahead of schedule and producing a high quality, reader-friendly publication."
