New Books Published by Mary Scott and Susan Snyder

In fall 2011, Mary Scott and Susan Snyder published Everyday Dogs: A Perpetual Calendar for Birthdays and Other Notable Dates, a fascinating keepsake that pairs literary quotes about canines with historical images from the Bancroft Library. Susan Snyder has published three other books drawn from the Library?s collections. Her most recent book, Beyond Words: 200 Years of Illustrated Diaries, was chosen by Oprah as the Book of the Week last fall. Snyder is Bancroft?s head of public service, and Scott is a graphic designer at the Library. Both Everyday Dogs and Beyond Words are produced by local publisher Heyday Books.

Allan Urbanic Honored with National Slavic Award

Allan Urbanic, who retired from the Library in June 2011, has been selected by the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies to receive its Distinguished Service Award for 2011. Allan, who is currently serving on recall as Slavic Librarian, was chosen for his "especially noteworthy" and "influential" contributions to the fields of Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies librarianship. He was nominated by his peers for the impact that he has had on Slavic, East European and Eurasian librarianship during his long career at Berkeley.

This award, sometimes called "the Nobel Prize for Slavic librarianship," will be presented to Allan at the 43rd Annual ASEEES Convention in Washington, DC on November 19, 2011.

Allan's Berkeley colleagues join with ASEEES members in saluting his achievements and his many contributions to the Library and the campus. There is no word yet on where his special NL parking spot will be located.
