ALCTS Presidential Citation awarded to "Pattern Recognition," the 2003 OCLC Environmental Scan
Each year the ALCTS President has the opportunity to award citations to individuals whose contributions do not fit the criteria used for other standing awards. Mr. Schottlaender termed "Pattern Recognition" as "far more than the 'typical' environmental scan...[it] is destined to become a classic in the field. I join my ALCTS colleagues in extending our congratulations to Lorcan and his OCLC collegues on a most excellent piece of work!"
Lorcan Dempsey, Vice President, OCLC Research, characterized the award as an acknowledgement of all the OCLC people who worked on the scan as well as the many others who provided input to it.
