Know a Health Science Librarians of Illinois member who has made a lasting difference in the organization? Consider nominating the person for the 2023 Starfish Thrower Award!
First presented in 2000, the Starfish Thrower Award is based on the story of the child who “makes a difference” by throwing stranded starfish back into the ocean one at a time. Thus, the Award recognizes the efforts and contributions of an individual HSLI member toward the good of the organization.
To nominate an HSLI colleague, or to nominate yourself, please complete the nomination form, available at here, and e-mail it to HSLI President Eric Edwards, at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Wednesday, September 6 (note new deadline). He will announce the winner at the HSLI Business Meeting, from 10:00 to 11:00 AM on Tuesday, September 26.
