Marta Lange/SAGE-CQ Press Award

About the Marta Lange/SAGE-CQ Press Award This annual award recognizes an academic or law librarian who, through research, service to the profession, or other creative activity, makes distinguished contributions to bibliography and information service in law or political science. This award honors Marta Lange, 1990-91 Law and Political Science Section (LPSS) Chair, whose exceptional talents as a leader were enhanced by a wonderful collegial spirit. Her bright career, cut short in a fatal automobile accident in 1992, was an inspiration to others and a model of professional service.

Lynda Kellam

Data Services and Government Information Librarian at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro

“Lynda Kellam has provided distinguished service in political science librarianship,” said award chair Erin Ackerman, social sciences librarian at the College of New Jersey. “The tools and programs she has created have an enormous impact on the profession as a whole and individual librarians.”

“Lynda created and continues to coordinate the webinar series ‘Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian,’” Ackerman continued. “These webinars cover a wide range of topics from Brexit to Census data to the U.S. Geological Survey. With this series – now in its ninth year – as well as in her work on academic databrarianship, Lynda creates opportunities for librarians to connect and share the information that helps us do our jobs better.”
