SLA-ENG: 2004/05 Elsevier Engineering Information/SLA Engineering Librarian Award

:: Should you be an award winner?

The SLA Engineering Division Awards Committee is now accepting nominations for the 2004/2005 Elsevier Engineering Information/SLA Engineering Librarian Award. This award is offered annually to honor a member of the SLA Engineering Division. It is sponsored by Elsevier Engineering Information Inc. and highlights the accomplishments and contributions of members of the Engineering Librarian profession. Recognition comes in the form of a $1,000 stipend, a plaque and a presentation at the annual business meeting held during the annual SLA conference. Based on criteria developed jointly with Elsevier Engineering Information, the year 2005 winner will be selected by members of the Engineering Division's Awards Committee. Prospective candidates are encouraged to nominate themselves, or an associate may nominate them.

Now's the time!

Many of you may take for granted your work-related competencies and contributions, and not think of them as extraordinary. We'd like to be the judge of that. Please send your nominations to the Awards Chair at the address below. The Awards Committee must receive submissions by March 1, 2005.
