Our 10,000th ILLiad Winner!

Carol Gocke and Arno Laesecke

NIST Physical and Chemical Properties Division researcher, Arno Laesecke, was recently honored as ILLiad's 10,000th request winner.

Seen at left is Carol Gocke, former Reference and Interlibrary Loan Librarian, presenting Arno with his winning prizes, a small yet adorably cute stuffed bear adorning Knovel attire, and a uniquely portable Web of Science spiral hardcover notebook. Little did Arno realize that his carefully-honed request skills would award him with such a dubious distinction!

Arno's reaction to the news was that of surprise, unaware that his fated mouseclick would soon bring him acclaim. He attests that ILLiad is an excellent tool for both he and his students / collegues. He highly recommends ILLiad to all Boulder Labs employees.
