Houston Librarian Marilyn Goff Named Recipient of 2014 TWU Award for Outstanding Contribution to TWU Libraries

Medical Librarian Marilyn M. Goff, MLS, AHIP, the librarian for the
Houston campus of TWU since 2000, has been named t
he recipient of
the 2014 TWU Award for Outstanding Contri
bution to TWU Libraries.  
Texas Woman's University Libraries are pleased and proud to announce that TWU Medical Librarian Marilyn M. Goff, the librarian for the Houston campus since 2000, has been named the recipient of the 2014 Texas Woman's University Award for Outstanding Contribution to TWU Libraries.

To say that Marilyn is a valued member of the Reference Department team of TWU Libraries would be an understatement. With 
expertise in health sciences internet research, she is a provider of cutting-edge research information to faculty members on the Houston campus of TWU.  Involved in every aspect of library operations for the ARC in Houston, Marilyn works tirelessly for the students and faculty members she serves.

Accolades for Marilyn began rolling in as soon as the award announcement was made.  "I am delighted to hear that our colleague Marilyn Goff is being recognized for her many achievements," said Professor Anne Young of the TWU College of Nursing.  "In Houston, we could not make it without her."  This sentiment was echoed time and again by faculty members Marilyn works with and for.  "We can always depend on her," said one.  "Her expertise is priceless," said another.  "We are so fortunate to have her here in Houston!" said a third.  "Most deserving!" said yet another.

As appreciated as she is by faculty members, Marilyn's supervisors are also keenly aware of the value of the research, teaching and customer service skills she possesses.  "
Marilyn is an accomplished medical  librarian with advanced research and teaching skills," says Connie Maxwell, Assistant Dean of Libraries.  "She is computer savvy,  customer-service oriented--and always has a warm and friendly smile."  "I was thrilled to learn that Marilyn had won the (TWU) Award for Outstanding Contribution to TWU Libraries," said Eula Oliphant.  "It is a pleasure to supervise someone who is so genuine and so dedicated to their work.  I have received numerous thank-you notes from students Marilyn has assisted--some even acknowledging that she is the reason they were able to graduate."  Eula added a sentiment which many who know Marilyn might use--"Thank you, Marilyn, for a job well done."

Please join the staff of the TWU Libraries as we honor our friend and colleague Marilyn Goff at an award presentation and reception on Monday, April 14, 2014 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Joyce Thompson Lecture Hall (Room 101) of the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus of TWU (the lecture hall is the first door on the right as you enter the building.)  Those on the TWU campuses in Dallas and Houston can view the proceedings live via video conference (in IHSD 3514 in Dallas, and in IHSH 3322 in Houston.)  A reception on the Houston campus to honor Marilyn is in the planning stages for a later date.

From all of us with the TWU Libraries, Marilyn, we offer our heartfelt congratulations to you for this well-deserved honor.
