Vi Moorhouse, Senior Map Cataloger at the Government Printing Office, is the 1998 recipient of the MAGERT Honors Award. The award is presented annually to a librarian for outstanding service to map librarianship.

Ms. Moorhouse has worked with maps since 1983, the year that maps were brought into the Depository Library Program. Her colleagues define her dedication to GPO and the Library Program as "legendary." She is known for accepting the most difficult maps to catalog, and doing them well. Her productivity, commitment, intelligence, and good humor have made her invaluable to GPO and the map community.

Ms. Moorhouse was honored at the 1998 MAGERT reception at the ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC, on June 26th. Nearly one hundred map librarians, GPO staff, and Vi's friends attended. MAGERT chair Karl Longstreth presented the award. In his remarks he noted that when Vi was notified that she was the award winner her first comment was that the award really belonged to GPO for giving her all these wonderful maps to catalog.

The MAGERT Honors Award Committee, on behalf of the membership, congratulates Ms. Moorhouse and extends our very best wishes to a most deserving librarian.
