Do you have a colleague who has made a substantial contribution to medical librarianship? Would they give a compelling lecture at the Medical Library Association’s annual meeting? Please take the time to nominate the person for the Janet Doe Lectureship award, one of the most prestigious awards given by the Medical Library Association. Self-nominations are also welcome.
The recipient will deliver one of the key plenary sessions at the 2024 Annual MLA Conference in Portland, OR, from May 18 to 21 (Saturday-Tuesday). The lecturer receives a $500 honorarium, and up to $1,700 to reimburse out-of-pocket expenses for travel, one-day hotel and per diem, conference registration, guest tickets for non-MLA members, and expenses related to research or preparation of the presentation.
When preparing your nomination, please review the award criteria and required documentation described here. Please remember to include evidence of the nominee’s public-speaking skills.
Nominations are due by Saturday, October 15, 2022. Submit nominations using the online form on the Janet Doe Lectureship page (see above link).
