Library Staff Acknowledged

It's always nice to know your work is appreciated!

Three Melville library staff have been recognized by author Frederick Brown in the Acknowledgments section of his latest book Flaubert: A Biography (Little, Brown, and Company: 2006). Donna Sammis from Interlibrary Loan, David Weiner from Circulation, and former staffer Kathleen Horan, also from Circulation, were praised by Brown for their "indulgence and unstinting efforts on [his] behalf".

For Sammis, this is at least the third book in which her skill in providing interlibrary loan materials has been recognized. In 2004, Amanda Frisken credited Sammis for assistance in confirming Woodhull's lecture tours in the book entitled Victoria Woodhull's Sexual Revolution: Political Theater and the Popular Press in Nineteenth-Century America (Univ. of Pennsylvania Press). Thomas Kerth, in the preface to his translation of Ulrich von Zatzikhoven's Lanzelet (Columbia Univ. Press: 2005), kindly states that the bibliographic portions of his work would not have been possible without the assistance of the Interlibrary Loan department and specifically thanks Sammis for her active interest in the project.
