Hi all, the deadline for nominations for ASCLA Awards has been extended to March 1. Please reach out to people you know or organizations you are familiar with to encourage them to apply for the various awards. Currently, we have received 2 nominations and it would be great to have more. Thanks!

Discussion Midwinter 2015?

by Linda Lyshol on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 at 03:16 pm

OK, I'm going to try this a different way.

I am Linda Lyshol and the chair of the Awards committee. I'm wondering if members of my committee are going to Midwinter or if a virtual meeting will be sufficient. Please let me know as soon as you can.

Discussion ASCLA Awards: Nomination period now open!

by Liz Markel (staff) on Tue, Oct 1, 2013 at 05:08 pm

Hi all,

Thank you for contributing your thoughts over the past month about a variety of issues. The deadline for nominations for 2014 has been set for Feb. 1. We hope that this will help generate some more applications, and it will also help alleviate any problems that may be created by my position being vacant (likely until Thanksgiving).

Hi all,

Thank you for contributing your thoughts over the past month about a variety of issues. The deadline for nominations for 2014 has been set for Feb. 1. We hope that this will help generate some more applications, and it will also help alleviate any problems that may be created by my position being vacant (likely until Thanksgiving).

The nomination forms are now available as both PDF and Word documents on each award's webpage. We do not have the software available here to create a fillable PDF--if a member(s) of the committee would like to take that task on, that would be great. Andrea Hill, ASCLA web manager (ahill@ala.org) can upload any new versions of the form.

While my position is vacant, all nominations are going to Leighann Wood, with questions directed to Susan.

As far as promotion...

I have issued a press release: http://www.ala.org/news/press-releases/2013/10/nomination-period-now-open-ascla-awards-recognizing-service-profession-and

I have also sent out a post via the ASCLA Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Association-for-Specialized-and-Cooperative-Library-Agencies-ASCLA/219200811423334) and Twitter (@ala_ascla) account.

Before I go I will send out a blast to listservs about the nomination period. Any promotion you can do to your own audiences--retweeting, sharing via Facebook, or sending out messages to listservs--would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
