Congratulations to our colleagues from the Southeast who have been recognized 
by the ALA Government Documents Round Table (GODORT).

  *   Laura Harper (University of Mississippi, retired) is to receive the 
Documents to the People Award.  This award honors an individual, library, 
institution, or other non-commercial group that has most effectively encouraged 
the use of government documents in support of library service.  The 
Collaborative Federal Depository Program has been the beneficiary of Laura’s 
generosity and commitment to government information.  Laura served on the 
initial Steering Committee for the ASERL Collaborative Federal Depository 
Program, providing guidance and leadership in this initiative through January 
2011.  During this time, she also established the Center of Excellence 
Collections for the Civil Rights Commission and the Internal Revenue Service at 
the University of Mississippi.

  *   Jane Canfield (Pontificia Universidad Católica, Biblioteca Encarnación 
Valdés, Puerto Rico) and Hayley Johnson (Louisiana State University) are to 
receive the Margaret T. Lane / Virginia F. Saunders Memorial Research Award for 
their chapters in the book:  Government Information Essentials, published by 
ALA and edited by Susanne Caro.  The award is given to an author or shared 
among collaborative authors of an outstanding research article in which 
government documents, either published or archival in nature, form a 
substantial part of the documented research.

  *   Hayley Johnson is also to be awarded the NewsBank/Readex/GODORT/ALA 
Catharine J. Reynolds Research Grant.  This award provides funding for research 
in the field of documents librarianship, or in a related area that would 
benefit the individual’s performance as a documents librarian or make a 
contribution to the field.
