Midwest Innovators Wanted

Sheryl Stevens, our chapter Awards & Scholarships Committee chair, sends this along:
The Midwest Chapter/MLA Awards & Scholarships Committee is seeking nominations for the Chapter’s 2008 Jean Williams Sayre Innovation Award. This award is intended to recognize individuals, groups, libraries, or organizations for their creative approaches to delivering and/or managing health information. It includes a cash prize of $500.
Please take a few minutes to think about some of the projects you and/or your colleagues have recently initiated, participated in, or are currently involved with. What about that project or accomplishment you described (or will be describing) in a paper or poster presentation at a conference? You’ve done the hard part already — filling out our nomination form is easy compared to that!
You can find additional information about the Innovation Award at: http://midwestmla.org/committees/awards/2008/Innovation%20Award%202008.pdf.
The nomination form is at: http://midwestmla.org/committees/awards/2008/Innovation%20Award%20Nomination%20Form%202008.pdf.
The application deadline is August 18, 2008.
Thanks for considering this. Please give our committee the opportunity to acknowledge your creativity and accomplishments!
The winner will be announced during at the Chapter’s Annual Business Meeting on October 20, 2008, at the Detroit Marriott Hotel in Troy, Michigan.
