Call for nominations--Esther J. Piercy Award

From: Karen E Brown <kebrown<-a>
Date: Monday, November 7, 2005
The Esther J. Piercy Award Jury is seeking nominations for the
Esther J. Piercy Award.  The award was established by the Resources
and Technical Services Division of the American Library Association
in 1968 in memory of Esther J. Piercy, editor of Journal of
Cataloging and Classification from 1950 to 1956 and of Library
Resources and Technical Services from 1957 to 1967.  The award
consists of a $1,500 grant donated by Yankee Book Peddler, Inc. and
a citation presented at the membership meeting of the Association
during the ALA Annual Conference. This award is given to recognize
the contribution to those areas of librarianship included in library
collections and technical services by a librarian with not more than
ten years of professional experience who has shown outstanding
promise for continuing contribution and leadership.

Submission procedure: Nominations shall include 1) name of nominee;
2) date nominee entered first professional position; and 3) a formal
statement of nomination, with a brief rationale for the nomination,
together with a resume or narrative career outline upon which the
award jury can base its determinations. Letters of endorsement from
others should provide additional evidence of the worthiness of the
nominee. The number of letters of endorsement received for a nominee
shall not be a determining factor in the selection process; rather,
the evidence of the person's accomplishments that they present shall
be the factor considered. Nominations for persons not selected for
the award in one year may be resubmitted provided the person still
meets the ten-year limit on length of professional experience.
Eligibility is not limited by country, citizenship, or membership in
a specific organization.

Criteria: Evidence of this promise is determined by the person's
accomplishments, as they are related to technical services and
resources, in such activities as:

    1.  Leadership in professional associations at local, state,
        regional or national level;

    2.  Contributions to the development, application or utilization
        of new or improved methods, techniques and routines;

    3.  Significant contribution to professional literature; and

    4.  Conduct of studies or research in the technical services.

Send Nominations to:
