Library Specialist Pamela Scott named the UIS Employee of the Month for November

Pamela Scott has been named the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for November 2018. She is a library specialist who serves as the night supervisor at UIS Brookens Library.

According to her supervisor, Scott “works the hours many would not work, and she does it with extreme dedication making sure that our patrons are provided with the best service possible no matter the time of the day they come to the library.”

Scott also works with faculty members to make sure they have the course reserves that are needed. According to a nominator, she has recently been working with new software to make sure electronic course reserves are accessible.

“Pamela cares deeply about providing positive experiences for our student employees and patrons and will go out of her way to provide those experiences,” said her supervisor.

Scott recently showed her dedication to students by shifting her schedule to complete Safe Zone training through the UIS Gender and Sexuality Student Services Office.

Her supervisor adds, Scott is “dependable and applies excellent judgment in emergency situations and is always on time.” She also plans her time off around intersession (between semesters) when her absence will have the least impact on library operations.

“Pamela is one of those employees who is rarely seen because of her hours, but the library wouldn’t be able to operate without her,” said her supervisor. “She is a deeply valued member of our staff.”
