Dear Colleagues:

Please encourage a current library student, recent graduate, or trainee in an internship program to submit an unpublished paper they authored for the 2015 Rittenhouse Award:

Criteria:                              The award is presented annually for the best unpublished paper, web-based project, video, or resource on health sciences librarianship or informatics submitted by a student enrolled in an ALA-accredited program of library and information studies, or a trainee in an internship program in health sciences librarianship or informatics.  Submitted works may be bibliographical, issue or topic- based, or report the results of research.  The submission must have been written during the student's course work toward a graduate degree in library science or during an internship program, and during the eighteen-month period preceding the deadline for submissions.  The submission must follow the format specified in the announcements.

A $500.00 cash award is sent after the annual meeting and a certificate is presented at the Annual Meeting.  The recipient's meeting registration is underwritten by the Association.

               Submissions can be bibliographical, issue/opinion, or research in nature.
