Nancy Faget, of the Army Research Laboratory, is a recipient of the ASGCLA Federal Achievement Award for 2020. Nancy Faget created Careers in Federal Libraries programming for library professionals to learn about careers in Federal government. Too often, library and informational professionals are unaware of the excellent opportunities for Careers in Federal Libraries. These challenging and rewarding careers afford librarians the opportunity to work around the globe in all types of libraries. The programming created by Ms. Faget filled a gap by educating librarians about the variety of careers in Federal government libraries. Through her years serving in ALA FAFLRT (now ASGCLA), Careers in Federal Libraries events were held for over a decade at variety of venues including the Library of Congress, dozens of library schools, and a variety of professional association conferences.
ASGCLA thanks COSLA, the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies, for supporting the 2020 Awards program. The Association for Specialized Government and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASGCLA), https://asgcladirect.org/ has been the premiere destination for ALA members to find information and build capacity to serve populations that are served by state library agencies, federal and armed forces libraries, libraries serving underserved populations, library cooperatives and library consultants. ASGCLA enhances the effectiveness of library service by advocating for and providing high quality networking, enrichment and educational opportunities for its diverse members.
