Dear MLA Colleagues:


Help recognize MLA's talented writer(s)! Take a moment and nominate a
colleague (or yourself!) for the Ida and George Eliot Prize. 


Presented annually, the Ida and George Eliot Prize is given for a work
published in the preceding calendar year that has been judged most effective
in furthering medical librarianship. The recipient receives a certificate at
the association's annual meeting and a cash award of $200.00 after the
annual meeting. There have been several noteworthy publications of late, so
please let us help bring attention to the great work being published this


A nominee's publication will be judged according to the following:

*        Contribution to the Profession:  Does the item further medical
librarianship by presenting new or innovative ideas of great importance?
Or, does it contribute a new and beneficial report or answer to an existing
situation or present a comprehensive state of the art report?

*         Impact:  Does the item show immediate or long range potential and
implications for those in the field of medical librarianship?  Does it
provide philosophical contributions or practical applications applicable to
a variety of medical library situations?

*         Arrangement of Information:  Does the item include all necessary
elements for expression of the idea?

*         Expression of Content:  Is the published work well presented and
easy to read? Is the style effective and consistent? 


Deadline for applications is November 1, 2014.
