MLA Ida and George Eliot Prize Nominations

Dear MLA Colleagues:

Help recognize MLA’s talented writer(s)! Take a moment and nominate a colleague (or yourself!) for the Ida and George Eliot Prize.

Presented annually, the Ida and George Eliot Prize is given for a work published in the preceding calendar year that has been judged most effective in furthering medical librarianship. The recipient receives a certificate at the association’s annual meeting and a cash award of $200.00 after the annual meeting. There have been several noteworthy publications of late, so please let us help bring attention to the great work being published this year! 

A nominee’s publication will be judged according to the following:

∙         Contribution to the Profession:  Does the item further medical librarianship by presenting new or innovative ideas of great importance?  Or, does it contribute a new and beneficial report or answer to an existing situation or present a comprehensive state of the art report?

∙         Impact:  Does the item show immediate or long range potential and implications for those in the field of medical librarianship?  Does it provide philosophical contributions or practical applications applicable to a variety of medical library situations?

∙         Arrangement of Information:  Does the item include all necessary elements for expression of the idea?

∙         Expression of Content:  Is the published work well presented and easy to read? Is the style effective and consistent?

Deadline for applications is November 1, 2015.

HPH Librarian Dave Coleman contributes featured article in MLA News!

Congratulations to Hawaii Pacific Health Librarian David Coleman who just published an article in the Hospital Librarian column of MLA News! You can find his article entitled, “Librarians, Informationists, and Swiss Army Knives” in the June/July 2015 issue (v.55:no.6, p.10).

”Librarians, Informationist and Swiss Army Knives” discusses the renovation of the Straub library and how the flexibility of the library space has to be matched by the flexibility of medical librarian role. The article describes the various roles the librarian/informationist plays in support of the organization mission  and how the library space has become an integral part of the larger hospital operation.
