Anna Schnitzer has what she calls her "dream job." And a lot of people benefit because of it.

Schnitzer is the Disability Issues and Outreach Librarian at the University of Michigan Taubman Health Sciences Library. The title, she says, is "pretty darn rare." Her efforts, colleagues say, are inspiring.

Thanks to a nomination submitted by her colleagues, Schnitzer recently received the 2012 Michael E. DeBakey Library Services Outreach Award from the Friends of the National Library of Medicine. The prestigious national prize recognizes a health sciences librarian for providing "outstanding services to rural or underserved communities."
