THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State University’s Ellender Memorial Library has been named the top library in the state among higher education institutions by LOUIS: The Louisiana Library Network earlier this month.
The Library of the Year award, which is handed out annually during the organization’s conference in Baton Rouge, recognizes libraries for their services, programs and projects as well as their contributions, collaborations and partnerships with the LOUIS staff and other state libraries.
“This award is a reflection of the hard work and collaboration of our team of librarians and staff along with the support of the University,” Library co-Director, Clifton Theriot, said. “We have continuously strived to provide resources and services to meet the needs of our users in this ever-changing information age. We’re honored to receive this award.”
Established in 1992, LOUIS is a consortium of public and private college and university libraries. It currently has 47 members and is funded by the institutions and the Louisiana Board of Regents.
