Latin American Specialist Receives 1994 Foik Award

Rafael E. Tarrago, subject librarian for Latin American studies, was honored with this year's Rev. Paul J. Foik, C.S.C., Award at the Presidential Dinner on May 17. The award recognizes significant contributions by a library faculty member to library service, to the Notre Dame community or to the library profession through personal scholarship or involvement in professional associations.

The citation reads:

At Notre Dame only eight years, this lively librarian has had tangible impact on the level of service in the Hesburgh Library. Researcher as well as bibliographer, he knows from personal experience the needs of his faculty colleagues and pursues them assiduously. International in background and wideranging in scope, he has used his skill not only to build a better Latin American collection, but also to find resources for its support.
