Share Your Success 2012 and Enter for a Chance to Win a $1000 Scholarship to MLA 2013

October is National Medical Librarian Month, and NN/LM SE/A wants to celebrate your success. Last year’s “Share Your Success” event was terrific, featuring a series of awe-inspiring stories about library advocacy. Geetha Sridaran and Kaye Robertson won the drawing for two $1000 travel scholarships for the 2012 MLA meeting in Seattle.

We are repeating the program this year, but with a difference: for 2012, we are looking for two kinds of stories to share on SEA Currents:

a)      Have you proven your worth to an administrator or told someone how important libraries are, changing his or her behavior?

b)      Have you explored new or non-traditional roles, expanding the realm of what a librarian does?

To enter the contest, tell us about your experience. Or share someone else’s story. Medical libraries around the region face ever-larger challenges, and we all need to work together by sharing our successful strategies to ensure a future for our profession and our institutions. Articles will be published on the NN/LM SE/A SEA Currents blog throughout the month of October.

Authors and subjects of articles will be entered into a competition for a$1000 travel scholarship to MLA 2013 in Boston, MA. One scholarship will be awarded and will cover travel: flight, hotel, and per diems up to $1000.

We will accept entries until October 15, 2012. The winner will be announced on October 31, 2012. Please submit articles to David Midyette at

Good luck!
