Sue A. Dodd

1993 Warren E. Miller Award for Meritorious Service to the Social Sciences

Sue A. Dodd served the social sciences from her position as a data librarian in the Institute for Research in Social Science, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She was the originator of the concept of cataloging cornputer-readable databases. She adapted the MARC record format of the Library of Congress to that end, developed a manual for cataloging datasets, and saw the concept accepted by the American Library Association. Often serving as the Official Representative at Chapel Hill, she connected her interests in cataloging with the practical concerns of a data librarian. She has been an intellectual leader in the effort to bring bibliographic order to archival data.
