Jane was too modest to submit to the listserv.  I have been lucky enough to
work with her the last year and a half.  From what I have seen, I think she and her staff deserve
the award.  Additionally, the Library recently moved into newly renovated quarters, with a
lovely view of the river (Naturally-they are a Navy library).
