MLA HLS Professional Development Award deadline March 1
The Professional Development Committee of the Hospital Library Section
invites HLS members to apply for a Professional Development Award. If a
HLS member has had an abstract or poster accepted by MLA for the 2013
meeting, that member would qualify. The funding could possibly enable a
recipient to offset expenditures in order to attend and present during
the annual Medical Library Association meeting.
The purpose of the HLS Professional Development Award is to recognize
those papers and/or posters at the MLA Annual Meeting that best
represent hospital librarianship. A jury made up of section members
will rank each submission and decide the award recipients based on the
blinded abstracts of the papers/posters.
To be eligible, the applicant must have a poster or paper accepted at
the MLA Annual Meeting of the year in which the Award will be given; and
the applicant must be a current HLS member.
The application must be received by March 1 of the year of the Annual
Meeting which will be attended. Only one $500.00 will be given to each
applicant per year. The applicant must provide the title and abstract
of the paper or poster with the application. Up to four awards may be
given per year.
To apply, please email the chair of the Professional Development
Committee: Ene Belleh, firstname.lastname@example.org . A signed
application form with the title and abstract of the paper or poster to
be presented must be received no later than March 1, 2013.
If you have had a paper or poster accepted by MLA for the 2013 annual
meeting and are a HLS member, please consider applying.
