T. Mark Hodges International Service Award (MLA) Nominations Due November 1st

MLA is now accepting applications for the T. Mark Hodges International Service Award established by MLA to honor outstanding individual achievement in promoting, enabling, and/or delivering improvements in the quality of health information internationally through the development of health information professionals, the improvement of libraries, or an increased use of health information services.

The awardee receives a certificate at the MLA annual meeting and the option of receiving a cash prize of $500, or a donation from the Medical Library Association in the amount of $500 to a charity of their choice.


  • Membership in MLA is not required.
  • Nominees usually would hold a professional Library or Information Science qualification but in the case of exceptional candidates this criterion may be waived.
  • The award is designed to enable MLA to recognize the widest range of achievement in the development of health information services in the international context. It will normally recognize a professional contribution over a sustained period of time, but may also mark a single, outstanding achievement of global significance.
  • The nominee’s achievement may cover the whole range of health information services or a single aspect, and similarly, it may be worldwide in its impact or of more narrow and intense focus.

Nominations due November 1st, 2015!
