Harold W. Billings Staff Honors Award
The Harold W. Billings Staff Honors Award recognizes outstanding work performance by staff members whose resourcefulness, dedication and ability help navigate the University of Texas Libraries through often uncharted seas.
Staff Honors Award recipients have the opportunity to select a book title to be added to the Libraries collections; the book will bear the recipient's name on the Staff Honors bookplate. Staff honorees also receive a framed commemorative Staff Honors Award bookplate, a letter of appreciation and special acknowledgment at the annual Staff Recognition Reception.
In August 2003, on the occasion of the retirement of the University of Texas Libraries long-time director, the endowment was renamed the Harold W. Billings Staff Honors Endowment.
