Vice-Provost and Chief Librarian Gerald Beasley and Senior Human Resources Office Kathleen DeLong were among a large group of library directors from across Alberta who saw UAL's former Associate University Librarian Kit Wilson receive The Alberta Library's Pat Jobb Service Award at TAL's Board Meeting in Calgary on Friday, April 15.

The Pat Jobb Service Award recognizes outstanding service and significant contribution to Alberta’s library community. It acknowledges the legacy of Pat Jobb, who played a leading role in the creation of The Alberta Library.

In addition to Kit's highly successful career at UAL, she was seconded to TAL for a 3-year period commencing September 1, 2005, as Manager of the Lois Hole Campus Alberta Digital Library. She brought great energy, devotion and intelligence to her new challenges, and the LHCADL was the 2008 recipient of the Canadian Association of College and University Libraries Innovation Award.

With typical modesty, Kit's eloquent acceptance speech attributed her success to the collaborative spirit of her TAL colleagues.

Congratulations Kit!
