Congratulations on your Retirement Margaret Cobb
The MAC Honors and Awards Committee would like to congratulate Margaret Cobb on her upcoming retirement.
Margaret Cobb, BA, MLS, AHIP-D manager of library services for the Novant Health system retired September 9, 2022 after 39 years with that organization or its precursors. Her role grew from that of a hospital librarian serving a single facility to responsibility for regional, and then systemwide library services. Her areas of responsibility also included at various times supervision of multimedia services as well as conference center operations. A 1982 graduate of the UNC School of Information and Library Science, she was active over the years with MLA, MAC, the Hospital Library Caucus of MLA, as well as ANCHASL (Assoc. of NC Health and Science Libraries). In 2015 she received the Hospital Library Section’s (now Hospital Library Caucus) Professional Recognition Award for Leadership and in 2010, the ANCHASL Service Excellence Award. However her greatest thrill remains winning MLA’s NMLM Creative Promotions Award in 2009 for production of a short promotional video ‘Fishing for Quality Health Information?”
