Two staff members of the Zalk Veterinary Medical Library are recipients of the esteemed Daniel T. Richards Prize. The Medical Library Association/Collection Development Section (MLA/CDS) awards the Richards Prize to an individual or individuals who created exemplary work in any format (print, audiovisual, electronic, etc.) related to collecting in the health sciences.
Head Librarian C. Trenton Boyd and Specialized Services Librarian Katherine M. Anderson are among the co-authors of the prize-winning article, titled, Basic list of veterinary medical serials, third edition: using a decision matrix to update the core list of veterinary journals.
The article was published in the Journal of the Medical Library Association last October, a product of the Veterinary Serials Committee, which Boyd chairs, of the Veterinary Medical Libraries Section of the Medical Library Association.
In addition to Boyd and Anderson, article co-authors included Ana G. Ugaz, resources management librarian, Medical Sciences Library, Texas A&M University; Vicki F. Croft, head librarian, Animal Health Library, Washington State University; and Esther E. Carrigan, associate dean and director, Medical Sciences Library, Texas A&M University.
Dan Richards (1945-1995) was instrumental in establishing biomedical library collection development as a rigorous discipline with a distinct methodology; the award was created in 1998 to honor his contributions.
