Piercy Call for Nominations

This announcement should be of interest to the preservation
community.  The Piercy Award has been awarded to preservation
librarians at least seven times over its short history, including
the last three consecutive years. If you would like to nominate
someone for this award, please follow the directions included in the
announcement below.  You may also contact me with any questions you
might have as I am serving on this year's award jury.

The members of the Esther J. Piercy Award Jury are pleased to call
for nominations of candidates for the award.  The deadline for
submitting a nomination package is December 1, 2001.

The Piercy Award, sponsored by the Association for Library
Collections and Technical Services, consists of a citation and a
$1,500 grant donated by YBP, Inc.  The award recognizes
contributions to those areas of librarianship included in
collections and technical services, that is, collection development,
acquisitions, cataloging, preservation, and serials, by a librarian
with not more than ten years of professional experience who has
shown outstanding promise for continuing contributions and
leadership.  The winner is not required to be an ALCTS member.  The
criteria include such activities as:

    a.  leadership in professional organizations at the local,
        state, regional, national, or international level;

    b.  contributions to the development, application, or
        utilization of new or improved methods, techniques, and

    c.  significant contributions to professional literature; and

    d.  conduct of studies or research in collections and/or
        technical services.

The deadline for nominations is December 1, 2001.  The award will be
presented to the winner at the ALCTS President's Program during the
2002 ALA Annual Conference.

Please submit a formal statement of nomination, the candidate's
vita, other relevant documentation, supporting letters, and up to
three examples of the candidate's publications to the Chair of the
Award Jury.  Persons nominated but not selected for the award in
previous years may be renominated provided the candidate still meets
the ten-year limit on length of professional experience. The
complete package must be postmarked or sent via email no later than
December 1, 2001, to
