To celebrate its 100th Anniversary, MLA acknowledged 100 individuals (“Notables”) who influenced and impacted the formation and growth of the Association throughout its first centennial. As we celebrate MLA’s 125th anniversary year, we want to continue to acknowledge those individuals and/or groups who have paved the way to create an open, inclusive, and collaborative environment within and outside the profession of health sciences librarianship. Some of these leaders have been previously recognized through honors and awards, but many have not despite how much they’ve inspired us for their contributions to the profession and MLA. Now is your chance to give these members the public “Thank You!” that they deserve.
The workgroup invites you to nominate a person or group who has influenced the direction, mission, and values of MLA. Think about members who:
- Have broken new ground and/or blazed new trails in terms of MLA’s structure and/or health sciences librarianship at large (via the organization)
- Have been instrumental in moving us towards being more diverse and inclusive
- Have established and promoted evolving aspects of medical and health sciences librarianship
- Have advocated for our profession in significant ways
Do you know someone or a group, committee or task force who should be recognized for their notable and remarkable contributions?
Please SUBMIT YOUR NOMINATION(S) HERE by October 31, 2023.
