Engineering Division Team Award

This award is offered annually to honor a team. It is sponsored by the SLA Engineering Division and highlights the accomplishments and contributions of a team working on projects in the area of engineering. A team may consist of members who work in a collaborative environment – academic libraries and corporations with several libraries or one librarian involved in a group project.

Recognition comes in the form of a $1500 stipend, plaques for team members and a presentation at the Division’s Annual Business Meeting held during the annual SLA conference. Prospective teams are encouraged to nominate themselves, or an associate may nominate them.

Criteria for nomination are:

1.One member of the team should be a member of SLA in good standing for one
year (as of January 1) of the previous year the award is given.

2. The team project accomplishment should have taken place within the calendar
year immediately preceding the nomination; however, in selected cases, based
solely on the Awards Committee’s judgment, recognition may be given for an
ongoing, long-term team project.

2.The team leader or one team member needs to be present at the Division’s
Annual Business Meeting to accept the award. Other team members wanting
to attend the presentation will need to make/pay for their own travel
arrangements.

Deadline for submission is March 1, 2007. The recipient of the award will be notified by April 1.
