Outstanding Service Award
Project Award

Tom Malefatto

Tom is our UMD Archivist, a Special Collections Librarian, and a Reference Librarian. His project was a move, reorganization, and a consolidation of the extensive collections in the UMD Archives and it resulted in a more secure and convenient location for the official records and historical materials of UMD and its predecessor instititions (Duluth State Teacher's College and the Duluth Normal School). The project also led to improved services, savings in staff time in handling requests for archival materials, and improved availability of the Northeast Minnesota Historical Center. Tom's progress through the project also facilitated improvements in the work of the other campus units.

The UMD Archives is an important unit of the campus. It contains official records of UMD as well as a significant amount of historical materials about the institution. Prior to 2002, these materials were located in several places on campus. Now that the collections are together, they can be accessed much more quickly and service to campus units improved accordingly (Archive collections are typically delivered to campus units on request.) In the course of accomplishing this project, Tom created many benefits fpr the campus. I am proud to present Tom with this Project award.
