The award recognizes the outstanding contributions of support staff to K-State Libraries. Each year the Libraries' faculty and staff nominate support staff for Employee of the Year, based on their special contributions, dedication to daily tasks, and ability to work successfully across the organization.
Nominations are reviewed by a diverse selection committee and a winner or winners are chosen. All nominees are acknowledged at an annual ceremony, and the winner or winners' names are added to the K-State Libraries' Support Staff the Year Award plaque, and receive a monetary award from the Friends of the K-State Libraries.
