Noxious Weeds Guide Makes Notable Government Documents List

Rodney G. Lym

A guide to noxious weeds in North Dakota, written by Dr. Rodney G. Lym, NDSU Department of Plant Sciences Associate Head and Professor in Perennial Weed Control, was one of three North Dakota documents nominated by the North Dakota Library Association (NDLA) Government Documents Roundtable (GODORT) to be included in the American Library Association (ALA) Notable Government Documents list. The nominated documents will be forwarded to a national competition.

Lym’s publication, titled “A Guide to North Dakota Noxious and Troublesome Weeds”, is designed to help land managers identify the state- or county-listed noxious weeds. Other species included in the guide are those with the most potential to spread within the state or into North Dakota from bordering states. The guide can be viewed at http://bit.ly/1qSxHxg.  

Several others in the Department of Plant Sciences have been nominated for this award in recent years. In 2010, Lym was nominated along with Andrea J. Travnicek for the publication titled “Identification and Control of Invasive and Troublesome Weeds in North Dakota”, and Alan Zuk, Jan Knodel (Entomology) and Ron Smith were nominated in 2012 for the publication titled “Home Lawn Problems and Solutions in North Dakota”.

The Notable Government Documents Award was established “to recognize excellence in government publications, identify documents of distinction, and commend individual works of superlative nature.” (ALA website) For more information on the NDLA award, go to http://ndla.info/awards/notable_documents.htm.
