NETSL Award Nominations

New England Technical Services Librarians (NETSL) Executive Board is seeking nominations for its annual NETSL Award for Excellence in Library Technical Services.

The NETSL Award recognizes and honors significant New England-based contributions to the field of library technical services. Eligible librarians include those who live outside of New England but whose service to the profession has impacted New England libraries, and those who reside in New England and have made contributions on a national level through publications, service, or innovations in practice.

NETSL wants to hear about those technical services librarians who have inspired others. Do you have a colleague who has tackled today’s challenges in technical services and triumphed? Do you know a person who leads the way in innovation, collaboration, or data integration? If you know someone who merits any or all of these descriptions, please consider submitting a nomination. You do not need to be a member of NETSL to make a nomination.

The next NETSL Award will be presented at the annual conference to be held on Monday, April 2, 2018 at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.

Eligibility for nomination:

  • Nominations must be accompanied by a written statement that includes the reasons for nomination and a narrative summary of the nominee’s career and achievements. The person’s resume or CV may be used to meet this requirement.
  • Nominees are not required to be NETSL/NELA members.
  • Current members of the NETSL Executive Board are not eligible for consideration.

Submit your nomination online by Friday, January 26, 2018. The Board reserves the right to suspend the Award for a year if no suitable candidate is nominated.

Further information, including past recipients, is available on the NETSL website:

Many thanks from the 2017/2018 NETSL Executive Board!
