The Medical Library Association’s Rittenhouse Award offers a great opportunity for professional recognition—and more!–to students in an American Library Association–accredited school of library and information studies or to trainees in an internship in health sciences librarianship or medical informatics. Established in 1967 by the Rittenhouse Medical Bookstore and continued by Rittenhouse Book Distributors, this award is presented annually for the best unpublished paper (bibliographical, issue or topic based, or report of research results) or web-based project, video, or resource on health sciences librarianship or medical informatics. The author of the winning essay receives free registration for the 2013 Medical Library Association’s annual meeting in Boston, plus a cash award of $500 and a certificate. Further information and an application form can be found at http://www.mlanet.org/awards/honors/, or contact Lara Handler, Jury Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or requests for additional information. Applications are due November 1, 2012.
