The Dudley Knox Library at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, received the 2004 Federal Library/Information Center of the Year award for the large library/information center category. Chosen from among the 2,000+ federal libraries and information centers, the Library has excelled in developing initiatives that bring critical content to the core of Navy work. One such initiative is the Homeland Security Digital Library, funded by the Office for Domestic Preparedness.
Dr. Maxine Reneker, associate provost for Library and Information Resources, points out that the expertise of each of the 34 Library staff members is the reason for the Library’s recognition as a leader among federal libraries. Consulted regularly on technical and research matters, they provide much-needed services, such as presenting on search methods for defense information, forming digital libraries, building taxonomies, and providing the latest news about security and defense topics.
The mission of the Dudley Knox Library is to provide the Naval Postgraduate School and the broader defense and security communities with an information-rich environment supporting academic and research pursuits.
