Veve was recognized for her innovative thinking and leadership in technical services librarianship, her contributions to library associations, and her research and publications. Her many publications on cataloging multimedia and remote access materials are defining best practices for cataloging digital content. She is the author or co-author of several articles on topics such as Functional Requirements for Authority Data and support of multiple metadata schema, and has presented on numerous subjects at national and local conferences. She has served on committees of ALCTS, the American Library Association and other professional associations.
