Graduate Student Organization Distinguished Service Award

Donna Sammis, Instructional support specialist in Interlibrary Loan has been awarded the Graduate Student Organization Distinguished Service Award for 2007-08.

GSO Distinguished Service Awards are ultimately decided by the GSO Executive Council. Each year a call is sent out to the GSO membership, all the graduate students at Stony Brook University, asking for people to nominate administrators, faculty and staff who have provided exceptional service to the graduate student community. The Executive Council then looks over the nominations and chooses who should get the award for that year.

Donna was nominated and chosen because of the exceptional service she's provided to graduate students. The items she orders through Interlibrary borrowing are essential to helping graduate students complete their papers, reports, experiments, thesis, dissertations, etc. over the years that they are in graduate school and hopefully beyond. Without her support, graduate student projects would take longer and/or might be impossible to complete.

Congratulations to Donna from her colleagues in ILL, Reference and throughout the library!
