Facultas Award to Domenick Liberato

Dr. Lillian “Boots” Cassel presented Domenick Liberato, Senior Library and Information Specialist, with the Facultas Award in a surprise meeting on April 1. This award, given by the Committee on Faculty of the Faculty Congress, recognizes exceptional support for the work of the faculty by Villanova University staff members. Other committee members, Professors Robert Styer, Lowell Gustafson and Q Chung, and Joe Lucia, University Librarian, also attended the presentation. 

According to Lucia, “Domenick has long been a friend, colleague and assistant to many of our faculty library users. This is a well deserved honor that reflects his continuous commitment to good service

Luisa Cywinski, one of Domenick’s supervisors, says, “I wholeheartedly believe that Domenick’s foremost concern is the satisfaction of our patrons’ information and service needs.”

During the last decade, Falvey staff members Bente Polites, Phylis Wright and the late Therese Dougherty also received the Facultas Award.
