Nominate a Colleague for MAC Award

Do you work with someone who is an inspiring MAC member? Recognizing our colleagues is one of the highest honors we can bestow on our peers. The time to nominate your colleague is now!

Each year, MAC gives a variety of awards to support the valuable contributions of medical librarians to the profession of health sciences librarianship. From research and instruction to outstanding service and leadership, MAC’s professional recognition program supports and encourages the best and brightest in the field.

If you know a MAC member who has shown leadership or initiative in the field, you can nominate them for one of these professional awards:

  • MAC Award for Professional Excellence by a Health Sciences Librarian
  • MAC Award for Professional Excellence by a New Health Sciences Librarian
  • MAC Award for Outstanding Health Sciences Library Paraprofessional
  • Marguerite Abel Service Recognition Award

Criteria for the awards can be accessed at

Colleagues who submit a nomination will be entered in a drawing for a free one-year MAC membership.

Members may also self-nominate for any of the awards with a letter of support from a supervisor or colleague.

The deadline for submitting nominations is July 1, 2018.

Submit your nomination by completing the online form at:

A plaque and a cash award of $250.00 will be awarded to the recipients. Presentation of the awards is at the business meeting during the annual meeting. We will honor all awardees at the MAC Conference October 28-30, 2018 in Ocean City, Md.
