Linda Fox Receives Distinguished Service Award

Linda Fox, Director of the Capital Region School Library System, is the recipient of the 2008 Distinguished Service Award from the School Library Systems Association of New York State (SLSA).

The Distinguished Service Award is presented to a School Library System Director whose work exemplifies six areas of consideration: professional leadership, professional service, information sharing, collaboration, quality programs and creative service.

SLSA President, Elizabeth Naylor-GutiƩrrez, made the following remarks during her award presentation. "Linda is well known for her responsive leadership and the creative services she provides the school library media specialists in her system. She is also an adjunct professor at SUNY Albany and is making a direct contribution to the development of the next generation of school library media specialists."

"Last year," she continued, "Linda led SLSA through its first year of consortium online database purchasing. The Online Resource Consortium enabled School Library System Directors to offer excellent prices on needed electronic resources to the school library media specialists they serve. The Online Resource Consortium would not have become a reality without Linda's vision and diligence."
