GIRT Awards

Mildred Lowe Award & Notable New York Document Award


Mildred Lowe Award:

This award is named in honor of Mildred Lowe, who was Dean of the Library School at St. John's University and a tireless advocate for public access to government information. She was a prominent member of the task force that produced the 1983 Plan for Federal Depository Library Service in New York State, a document which has been called a "model plan."

The Mildred Lowe Award is presented annually by the New York Library Association/Government Information Round Table to a librarian who has made a significant contribution to government documents librarianship, access to government information, and/or the encouragement of documents use in New York State libraries. Persons considered for the award can work with any level of documents -- U.S., state, local, international -- in any type of library.
