Share Your Success and Enter for a Chance to Win a $1000 Travel Award to MLA 2014

We’ve gotten a late start, but 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 and new roles for librarians. Judy Burnham and Carolyn Schubert won the drawing for two $1000 travel awards for the 2013 MLA meeting in Boston. 

We are repeating the program this year and are asking 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 and into November.

Authors and subjects of articles will be entered into a competition for a$1000 travel scholarship to MLA 2014 in Chicago, IL. Two awards will be made to cover travel: flight, hotel, and per diems up to $1000.

We will accept entries until October 31, 2013. The winner will be announced on November 1, 2013.

Please submit articles to J. Dale Prince at

Good luck!
