WKU Libraries - Awards & Recognitions
Every year, the WKU Libraries commend their employees and student assistants for their outstanding performance with the Margie Helm Award and periodically confer the Sara Tyler Award to a member of the faculty for outstanding dedicated service in the field of librarianship.
Libraries' faculty and staff often receive awards from the college, the University, and professional associations they are affiliated with and institutions they make contributions to in the region and the country.
The WKU Libraries has also established The Evelyn Thurman Young Readers Book Award for books written/illustrated by Kentucky authors or with Kentucky themes.
As the result of the collaborative effort between WKU Libraries and University Experience, a Best Career Essay Award and a Best Annotated Bibliography Award have recently been established for undergraduate students.
