Sarah Tudesco and Jindra Miller are the recipients of the 2011 Carol Ishimoto Award for Distinguished Service in the Harvard College Library.

Created through a 1991 endowment established by former Associate Librarian of Harvard College for Cataloging and Processing Carol Ishimoto, the award annually recognizes a member or group of the professional staff who has advanced the mission of the Library through exceptional contributions and leadership, and includes a cash award and citation for creative professional achievement of the highest order.

At the award presentation today, Susan Fliss, Associate Librarian of Harvard College for Research, Teaching, and Learning and Interim Librarian of Harvard College, said, “Jinda Miller and Sarah Tudesco are being rewarded today for their exceptional contributions and leadership. In reviewing their nominations there were several common themes in their work: extra effort, dedication, creativity, curiosity and determination, generosity, and willingness to collaborate. I commend you and thank you for putting yourselves wholeheartedly into your work. Your colleagues and the Library community benefit greatly from your efforts.”
