Two Laupus Librarians Honored with National Award

At ECU, you never have to look far to find someone excelling at the top of their field. From our research labs to our athletic fields, our fellow Pirates are building reputations as champions of their field. Laupus Library is no different.

We’re proud to announce that two of our librarians, Beth Ketterman and Kathy Cable were recently awarded the Daniel T. Richards Prize. This award is given annually to individuals who author outstanding works related to health sciences collection development. The award is sponsored by the Collection Development Section of the Medical Library Association.

Ketterman and Cable were recognized for their article, Creating a Shared Neuroscience Collection Development Policy. The article details the Laupus/Joyner libraries’ creation of a new collection development policy that meets the research needs of ECU/Division of Health Sciences neuroscience faculty and students. Ketterman currently serves as Assistant Director of Collections at Laupus and Cable works as a Library Liason, often working closely with the Brody School of Medicine.

This recognition places them among the top librarians in the country, and furthers Laupus Library’s reputation as an elite health sciences library devoted to providing our students and faculty with top-rate staff and cutting-edge resources.

We know that ECU produces champions each day. We’re excited to share that Laupus now has two names to add to the list.
