Distance Learning Librarian Conference Sponsorship Award
Librarianship for distance students is often neglected but this award is an opportunity to show the world what we do. Since many librarians are too modest to nominate themselves, each of us should take the responsibility to nominate an outstanding librarian.
Here are some ideas that may indicate a potential award winner.
- Superior service to students & faculty
- Scholarly research and publication
- Planning of model programs
- Advocacy for librarianship in distance programs
- Innovation in providing services beyond traditional programs
- Leadership in the field or in a program
The award is a plaque and $1,200 from Haworth Press for conference expenses.
Do not miss this opportunity to nominate your favorite librarian and reward them for their accomplishments.
