Joan Stahl, the Libraries’ Director of Research & Instruction, was awarded a special Staff Award for Excellence to recognize her service in the time of COVID-19. During the earliest weeks of the pandemic, she single-handedly provided services to Catholic University students and faculty well beyond what any library in the region was doing at that time.
One of her colleagues shared:
The amount of work that she did during the most challenging times this year is truly amazing.
In addition to facilitating countless curbside pickups and resolving many issues related to patron requests, Joan did an enormous amount of scanning on demand and provided a lot of support to many of us.
Past honorees of the Edward J. Belanger Staff Award serve as the award committee for the University Libraries staff.
