Staff Recognition Awards in ARL Libraries. SPEC (Systems and Procedures Exchange Center) Kit #173.
Association of Research Libraries, Washington, DC. Office of Management Studies.
For this kit, 119 Association of Research Libraries (ARL) member libraries were surveyed to ascertain the extent of employee award programs. The survey focused on identifying how many member libraries have an employee award program and also gathered information on the nature of these programs. Questions were designed to identify what is rewarded, the criteria and selection process used to determine the recipients, types of awards given, when and how the award presentations are made, problems encountered in implementing the program, and advice to those thinking about developing such a program. Respondents having a staff recognition program also supplied copies of their policies and procedures. Following a brief overview of the study and the SPEC survey results, the kit provides examples of the policies and procedures of employee award programs; these materials were contributed by the following institutions: University of California (Irvine, Riverside); University of Colorado (Boulder); Duke University; Georgia Institute of Technology; University of Georgia; University of Hawaii (Manoa); University of Houston; Indiana University; University of Kentucky; National Agriculture Library; National Library of Medicine; University of Nebraska (Lincoln); University of Notre Dame; Purdue University; Rutgers University; Southern Illinois University (Carbondale); State University of New York (Albany, Stonybrook); Syracuse University; Texas A&M University; University of Texas (Austin); Vanderbilt University; and Washington State University. A copy of the SPEC survey questionnaire with a tally of the responses is included. (20 selected readings) (MAB)
