Research award

From: Debra McKern <libdmk>
Date: Monday, October 14, 1991

I'm forwarding this to you because I think it might be of interest to
folks on the DistList.  I would like to encourage research into library
binding issues in particular.  Although $1,000 is not a lot of money, it
may be enough to conduct a small study.

                         RESEARCH AWARD

    The Library Acquisitions: Practice & Theory (LAPT) Research Award
    provides an annual prize of $1,000 for research in the broad areas
    of acquisitions, serials, publishing, and collection management.
    The award will be given for one proposal and administered in two
    parts: $500 when the proposal is selected to fund the research
    effort and $500 when the completed manuscript is submitted to
    Library Acquisitions: Practice & Theory.  The award will be granted
    to the individual, not the institution, and may be used to cover
    expenses incurred in conducting the research outlined in the winning
    proposal, including travel, postage, staff support, supplies, and
    other items.

    The winning proposal will identify a critical issue in acquisitions,
    serials or collection management and outline a rigorous approach to
    testing or solving the issue raised. Proposals will be judged on
    their significance, clarity and originality.  The proposal should be
    a brief description (no more than 250 words) of the project. A
    budget proposal and a one page vita of the author must be attached.
    Awards will not be limited to experienced researchers.

    The deadline for submitting proposals is March 15, 1992. Proposals
    will be reviewed by a panel consisting of the editor-in- chief, the
    assistant editors, and three members of the editorial board.  The
    winning proposal will be announced at the annual American Library
    Association Conference (in San Francisco in 1992) and in the third
    issue of LAPT for the year.  Research for the winning proposal must
    be completed within one year of the date when the award is

    Library Acquisitions: Practice & Theory reserves the right of first
    refusal of the completed manuscript.  Proposals and questions
    concerning this award should be addressed to:
