Bill Moen a LITA Award Winner!

Many of you Texans might remember William E. Moen (Bill to most of us) from either the Z Texas Profile (Z39.50) or the more recent Library of Texas work. Bill has always been interested in interoperability between systems/databases and how that affects retrieval. This interest has lead him to work both within the state, as well as nationally and internationally. He has recently won the 2005 Frederick G. Kilgour Award for Research in Library and Information Technology, sponsored by LITA and OCLC.
The award is given to a person who has amassed a significant body of research in the field of library and information technology. Particular recognition is given to research which results in a positive and substantive impact on the publication, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information. The award consists of $2,000, an expense paid trip to the ALA Annual Conference, and a citation of merit. Moen will be accepting the award at the LITA President's Program on Sunday, June 26, 2005 at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.
If you have a few moments, send congratulations to Bill (wemoen@unt.edu)!
