From the ALA Chapter Relations Office --
The nomination period for RUSA’s 2013 achievement awards, travel scholarships and research grants is now open!
We have a large variety of awards for both new and accomplished librarians throughout the reference and user services profession.
Among them, we have two new awards this year:
The Gale Cengage History Research and Innovation Award encourages submissions from MLS degreed librarians looking to further research relating to history and history librarianship. Research must reflect interest in one of the History Section’s subject-oriented committees: Genealogy, Local History, Instruction and Research Services and Historical Materials. The winner will receive up to $2,500, sponsored by Gale Cengage, and a citation.
A comprehensive list of these awards with pertinent details about the nomination period and related deadlines is at the RUSA Blog:
