We’re pleased to announce that The Hub has been selected for the South Carolina Library’s Notable State Documents List for 2016. The annual award is meant to call attention to the most informative documents released by state agencies. The South Carolina State Library began the Notable State Documents awards program in 1991 to recognize exemplary documents among the 3,000 items submitted each year to its depositories. The Hub also won the award in 2012.
A panel of librarians and state employees selected the documents for inclusion on the list, grading the publications based on their designs, writing styles, and breadth of information. The judges chose a diverse group of documents for recognition. Documents detailing rules for healthy eating, natural disaster recovery efforts, and wildlife conservation efforts were among the 11 publications that made the cut.
State Library Director Leesa Aiken said the yearly award showcases some of the strongest work completed by state agencies.
“South Carolina state documents provide a wealth of information, statistics, and share a broad range of knowledge about our state,” Aiken said. “I am pleased that we are able to publicly recognize these important publications and websites as notable documents, and it is my hope that all South Carolina state agencies continue to produce high quality documents such as these.”
Awards will be presented March 16 at 10 a.m. at the South Carolina State Library in Columbia. The complete 2016 Notable State Documents list is available on the State Library’s website.
