RRLC Special Library of the Year Award 2012: The Research and Development Library at Bausch + Lomb

by David Jenyns

“The Bausch + Lomb Library plays a critical role in helping our scientists develop new products by giving them access to key scientific information. We are lucky to have access to literally thousands of publications on paper and electronically. More importantly, our library is a global resource for Bausch + Lomb, helping our teams around the world ultimately bring innovative eye health solutions to market that help people see better — to live better.” said George Grobe III, Ph.D., Vice President of Global Research & Development, Vision Care at Bausch + Lomb. This quote, and several others like it, was the reason the judges for the RRLC National Library Week contest chose the Research and Development Library at Bausch + Lomb as the RRLC 2012 Academic/Special Library of the Year. The judges noted especially that nominators seemed well acquainted with the library and the librarian, Ellen Dietterick. The judges said that “…at a time when many are questioning need for a library/librarian, these library users recognize the great value they are getting for themselves and their company.” Serving a global community and making that service personal is something the library and the librarian take pride in. And their community recognizes it! Congratulations, Ellen, for Bausch + Lomb R & D Library being selected as the 2012 RRLC Academic/Special Library of the Year!

This is not my video. The video was made by this wonderful animal rescue group called Hope for Paws (hopeforpaws.org). It’s an amazing story about how they rescued a blind dog from certain death and brought it back to health. Warmed my heart and brought a tear to my eyes. There are still good people in the world. Please donate to this organization if you can. ***************************************** Fiona the dog nursed back to health “When Eldad and Audrey Hagar found Fiona in a pile of trash in Los Angeles, she was in bad shape. She was sick, blind and covered in fleas. The couple, who founded an LA-based animal rescue organization called Hope for Paws, cleaned up and started to road to recovery for Fiona, a poodle mix. The couple started a national fundraising drive and collected enough money to pay for Fiona’s 00 eye surgery to replace a lense in one eye. The other eye was too badly damaged to be saved. After her surgery, Fiona was and adopted and is reportedly doing great. Watch her amazing story” wj.la
