The Rio Grande Chapter (RGC) of the Special Libraries Association (SLA) is now accepting applications for the 2014 Donna Cromer Memorial Award, in honor of the late Donna Cromer, a University of New Mexico science librarian and member of the RGC and the SLA’s Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics (PAM) Division, who passed away in 2013.

This award was created to encourage professional development and continued involvement for current members of the Special Libraries Association, who may need partial financial assistance to undertake or continue in a graduate library/information science (or related discipline) program, or attend other professional development conferences, workshops, or classes on their own or with assistance from their employer.

Is there someone you think could benefit from this award? The recipient must be:

  1. A current SLA Rio Grande Chapter or Physics Astronomy and Mathematics Division member,
  2. for whom pursuing coursework or attending a conference or workshop would be difficult without assistance, and
  3. who agrees to submit an article discussing course participation and benefit from the class or professional development event to the RGC and the PAM division newsletter.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, October 13th. Contact the Chapter President for more information.
