The Academic Librarian of the Year Award is a great way to recognize someone for their hard work and dedication. This would be a great time to nominate that co-worker that demonstrates excellence in everything they do. Maybe there is a colleague whom you've worked closely with that does in outstanding job in leadership, publications, or research. Consider nominating that colleague or co-worker who has made outstanding contributions to academic health sciences librarianship.
The nominee must be a member of both SC/MLA and MLA. They must in "mid-career" at the time of the award, which is defined as someone working at least 5 and not more than 15 years in an academic health sciences library. Please remember the nominee may not be a library director. For more information, please see here.
The winner of the award will be announced at the Annual Meeting of SC/MLA and they will also be presented with a plaque along with a check for $250.
The deadline to nominate is June 1. Please submit nominations to the Chair of the Honors & Awards Committee.
