We are now soliciting nominations for the ENY/ACRL Library Innovation Award , which recognizes a chapter member whose creativity, vision and leadership have contributed to positive changes within the academic library community. The award includes a plaque and a $500 honorarium, which is presented at ENY/ACRL’s spring conference.
Submit nominations online on the “Awards” page of the ENY/ACRL site.
This new award replaces our “Librarian of the Year” award–and doubles the honorarium!
Slides from the Syracuse Brown Bag Ebooks Discussion are now available.
The event was held on November 12, 2012 at Moon Library, State University of New York
College of Environmental Science and Forestry.
Three positions on the ENY/ACRL Board will be up for election in spring 2013:
- Program Chair/President/Past President (3-year term),
- Communications Chair (2-year term),
- Government Relations Chair (2-year term).
Please consider throwing your hat in the ring for one of these positions, or suggesting the idea to a colleague. Our organization is always stronger when we have participation at the Board-level from librarians in different types of settings–small colleges and large universities, private schools and public schools, community colleges and research institutions.
For more details regarding each position, consult the Officer’s Handbook or contact me.
Our nomination deadline is February 8th, 2013. Nominees must be members in good standing of ENY/ACRL and must be members of ACRL if elected.
If you are interested or have questions please don’t hesitate to contact me (email@example.com).
