News: Carol Lefebvre was awarded the T. Mark Hodges International Service Award by the Medical Library Association (MLA).

The T. Mark Hodges International Service Award was established in 2007 to honor outstanding individual achievement in promoting, enabling and/or delivering improvements in the quality of health information internationally through the development of health information professions, the improvement of libraries or an increased use of health information services.
Carol works as a TSC for the Cochrane Collaboration, i.e. coordinating searches for Cochrane authors or Centres. She does a wonderful job here. Among other things, Carol helped to develop the sensitive Cochrane search filters for finding randomized controlled trials (RCT’s), coaches and trains other information specialists, and wrote the chapter on “Searching” in the Cochrane Handbook.

Above all she is always willing to help everyone and is therefore considered as “the mother of all clinical librarians” by many.

Congratulations Carol!
