I.D. Weeks Library, University of South Dakota, Vermillion, in recognition of long years of support of the Mountain Plains Library Association.
The active involvement of a librarian in a professional organization requires substantial support and commitment from the librarian's employer. The I.D. Weeks Library has provided just that support to MPLA's long-time Executive Secretary Joe Edelen.
In addition, the Library has provided a permanent address for MPLA and the university has hosted the MPLA Web site since its creation. This positive support has been vital in the ongoing functioning of MPLA.
