1993 – Marie Whited

Marie Whited is the 1993 recipient of the Renee D. Chapman Memorial Award for Outstanding Contributions in Technical Services Law Librarianship.  The award was presented at the business meeting of the Technical Services SIS on July 11, 1993 in Boston.

Held in high esteem as an author, teacher, speaker and mentor, Marie is an expert on Library of Congress law classification and cataloging. Through numerous panels and workshops, she has generously shared her expertise, most recently at the 1993 Summer Institute on International Organizations, where she spoke on EEC and UN classification. Currently chairing the TS-SIS Cataloging and Classification Committee, Marie is an authoritative guide for her colleagues throughout the library world, and she serves as an influence and inspiration to many in law librarianship.

The Technical Services SIS Awards Committee is proud to recognize these achievements and to present Marie Whited with the Award for Outstanding Contributions in Technical Services Librarianship.

The Renee D. Chapman Memorial Award was established in 1991 to recognize extended and sustained distinguished service to technical services law librarianship and AALL. It honors the memory of Renee Chapman, former Head of Technical Services at the Charles B. Sears Law Library at the State University of New York at Buffalo, and Chair of the Technical Services SIS in 1988-1989.
