The Award honors the memory of the Rutgers Preservation Librarian whose leadership in New Jersey inspired and influenced many others in our profession, particularly in the areas of preservation and book arts.”

In remarks by Elsalyn Palmisano, the inaugural recipient of the Swarzburg Award in 2003, she chronicled Pachman’s involvement in statewide and local preservation activities; serving as an officer in the NJLA History and Preservation Section, as a member of the New Jersey State Library – Preservation Study Advisory Committee, and active in the Medical Library Association. The comments also reviewed his contributions to the commemoration of the 125th anniversary of Monmouth Medical Center, work with the Caucus Archival Projects Evaluation Service sponsored by the New Jersey Caucus of the MidAtlantic Regional Archives Conference, membership in local historical associations, and his role as founder of the New Jersey Scout Museum.

Pachman addressed the audience, celebrating the role of librarians who “promote services that showcase history,” urged attendees to recognize preservation of history and archives as a “core function and service that we provide our patrons,” and reminded us all that “it is vital for libraries to ‘do history.’ ”
