Congratulations to the SCC Library Committee

Congratulations to the the Library Committee of the Scandinavian Collectors Club (SCC) on the receipt of the prestigious  CARL E. PELANDER AWARD in 2012 for outstanding work in furthering the aims of the SCC. The Library Committee includes Paul Albright, Howard Benson, Roger Cichorz, Greg Frantz, Jim Kilbane, and Jeff Modesitt. This is the first time the award has gone to a group instead of a single individual. The Scandinavian Collectors Club Library is housed in two rooms in the Rocky Mountain Philatelic Library (RMPL) complex in Denver, CO. I was able to visit the RMPL complex and the SCC Library while in Denver for the Rocky Mountain Stamp Show last week. Thanks to the work of Library Committee member Greg Frantz who is a cabinet maker, the library makes maximum use of its space. Basically, books, articles, exhibits and auction catalogs, and AV presentations are in one room with periodicals and show catalogs in the second room. Although the Library has its own online catalog, it is exploring the possibility of joining the Philatelic Union Catalog project of the American Philatelic Research Library. I was fortunate to be able to meet and talk to Library Committee member Paul Albright on my visit.
