LAUC-LA 1994 Librarian of the Year Award
May 3, 1994
Aggi Raeder, librarian at the University of California, Los Angeles, is the first recipient of the Librarian of the Year award, given by the Librarians1 Association of the University of California, Los Angeles. This newly-established annual award is intended to recognize excellence in librarianship, especially as it enhances library service and furthers the teaching and research missions of UCLA.
Ms. Raeder, recently retired from the Engineering and Math Sciences Library, was recognized for her creativity and innovation in developing dBase applications for several UCLA libraries and for the campus as a whole. Ms. Raeder is the author of the BIBB program, used for formatting ORION records into a standard bibliographic format. The BIBB program was especially useful to the History and Special Collections Division of the Louise Darling Biomedical Library to prepare a bibliography of all books purchased using the Murphy endowment, presented to Dr. Franklin D. Murphy on the occasion of his 75th birthday.
