The Renee D. Chapman Memorial Award for Outstanding Contributions in Technical Services Law Librarianship is presented at AALL's Annual Meeting to an individual or a group in recognition of achievement in an area of technical services, for service to the Association, or for outstanding contributions to the professional literature. The TS-SIS Awards Committee is seeking nominations for the award that will be presented in Baltimore in 1997.
Factors considered in selecting the recipients of the Award include such things as the publishing, presenting, or sharing of innovative techniques or research, analysis or commentary; the development of software, hardware, or other mechanisms that significantly enhance access to collections; and the contribution of service to the Technical Services SIS as a whole. Achievements may be in the areas of acquisitions, cataloging and classification, materials processing, preservation, automation, or technical services administration.
All members of AALL are invited to submit names for consideration. Nominations should include the candidate's full name, title and current firm, company, or institution name and address. If the candidate is retired, the name and last place of work and the home address should be submitted. The letter of nomination should be signed by someone other than the individual being nominated, and should accompany a list of projects, programs, or publications of the candidate. The letter should describe the candidate's work with respect to his or her qualifications for the Award.
