The University Library's Barnard Outstanding Service Award Committee is pleased to announce Matt Decker-Maurer, Library Systems Technician, as this year’s Outstanding Service Award recipient. Here are a few comments from some of the nominations Matt received:
“Matt gives of himself when he helps staff and patrons with a dizzying number of issues without missing a beat. He is a great asset for both his technical skills as well as his approaches to people and problem solving.”
“Matt's position is really a behind-the-scenes job, but he enjoys interacting with people and he is very good at assisting people with printing and computer problems. He is always very patient and helpful with our patrons and persistent in advocating for improving the technology behind the service.”
The Barnard Outstanding Service Award was established by David and Kay Barnard to recognize library staff members who have achieved over and above what is required in their position description and have made outstanding contributions in serving the information needs of students, faculty, and staff. The Award continues to be supported by the David P. Barnard Family Endowment and the Stout Foundation, Inc.
A reception honoring Matt will be held Monday, April 13, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. on the fourth floor of the University Library.
