Marlatt Receives UW Libraries Outstanding Staff Award
April 22, 2013 — University of Wyoming Libraries has presented its Outstanding Staff Award to Nancy Cyrus Marlatt, marketing and public relations coordinator. The award recognized her contributions during 2012.
The Outstanding Staff Award, funded by the McMurry-Spieles Library Excellence Fund, honors a University Libraries’ staff member who has “demonstrated exceptional service to UW Libraries and made significant contributions to the university and/or the community.” Individuals are nominated by their peers and a committee selects the recipient.
Marlatt coordinates marketing and public relations for library fundraising and student programming events, library resources and library services. She also designs and edits library publications and newsletters.
In 2012, she played a key role in the success of Manifold Greatness: the Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible. In addition to handling the publicity for the exhibit and lectures, she contributed to the overall planning and organization of the related events as well as with the initial grant writing.
Martha Hanscom’s nomination noted, “The project owes much of its success to Nancy’s contribution. I am extremely grateful that she was a part of the planning team.”
Jennifer Mayer, who worked with Marlatt to coordinate the redesign of the Libraries’ logo, wrote, “Nancy demonstrated significant leadership in that it included many (individuals) from the libraries working on concepts and receiving feedback.”
“Her work is extremely high caliber and she is a model employee of the UW Libraries,” added Associate Dean Lori Phillips.
In addition to her dedication to UW Libraries, Marlatt serves as the volunteer librarian at her church, a Sunday School substitute teacher, a former Girl Scout Leader and she volunteers in Rabbit Project for Albany County 4H. She has rallied her colleagues to participate in non-library events such as the 5K Warrior Dash, an obstacle mud race, ran last August.
