College & Research Libraries News


At its first Midwinter meeting, the Board of Directors of the Association of College and Research Libraries paid the following tribute to Louise Giles.

Sadly, there comes a time when it is too late to commend a friend for a job well done. Such a time has come, and this is our tribute to Louise Giles.

Louise Giles was a fine administrator, a professionally dedicated librarian, a tireless and faithful worker in our association, a leader, an inspiration to beginning librarians, an innovator interested in improving library service, but most of all she was a warm, outgoing, and committed human being.

She was dean of learning resources at Macomb County Community College in Michigan, a former chairman of the Community and Junior College Libraries Section, a past president of the Association of College and Research Libraries, and an American Library Association councilor.

None of these accomplishments, however, adds up to what Louise Giles was to each of us, and that is, a friend. Therefore, let us remember her friendship and her spirit and rededicate ourselves to our communities and our association. ■ ■
