Knapp Room to be dedicated at Hillman Library
A plaque and portrait etching will be unveiled at 11 a.m. Dec. 15 as a room on Hillman Library’s ground floor is dedicated in honor of Amy E. Knapp, University Library System librarian and School of Information Sciences adjunct faculty member, who died May 31 following a battle with cancer.
Knapp earned her bachelor’s degree, two master’s degrees and a PhD at Pitt.
She began her ULS career as an undergraduate student in the 1980s. She held several positions at ULS, rising to assistant university librarian in 2002. In that capacity she managed the ULS Public Services Division and departmental libraries.
In addition to the room dedication, the first recipient of the Dr. Amy E. Knapp Award will be announced at noon in the William Pitt Union as part of the ULS in-service day. The award will recognize individuals who have demonstrated exemplary service to the organizational goals of ULS and to the community service ideals Knapp exemplified.
