The Iowa Library Association member of the year was recently bestowed on Barb Corson, Program Director for Specialized Library Services in the Des Moines Iowa Library Services office.  The presentation was made at the fall ILA conference on October 12, 2012 in Dubuque IA. Ms. Corson was recognized for her work with libraries throughout the state of Iowa including academic, school, public and special libraries. She also is instrumental in the ILA newsletter, Catalyst. Her nominator described Barb as "the ideal professional colleague - creative, hard-working and focused on the broader goals of ILA and service to Iowa libraries." Congratulations to Barb for the hard work offered to Iowa school librarians and other ILA members.
