APA seeks librarian excellence nominations

The American Psychological Association (APA) is seeking nominations for the APA’s 2013 Excellence in Librarianship Award. The award will be presented at the Educational & Behavioral Sciences Section (EBSS) Research Forum at the June 2013 American Library Association Annual Meeting in Chicago.

The APA Excellence in Librarianship Award is open to both librarians and allied professionals with at least five years of professional experience. It recognises a contribution to psychology and behavioural sciences librarianship including instructions, project development, publications, research or service.

Examples include: development and implementation of new curricula or instructional programmes; innovative teaching methods; outstanding research contributions; demonstrated service in an organisation that supports research; development of a collection, access tool, or innovative reference; or publications such as books, journal articles, websites or multimedia products.
