Call for Exemplary Award Nominations!
The AFC Learning Resources Commission is pleased to sponsor the two Annual Learning Resources Commission Exemplary Practice Awards:
1) Library Services for MLS Librarians
2) Learning Support Services for support staff
The commission recognizes outstanding programs and professionals in the learning resources field and invites each Florida College to showcase its best programs.
If your college has a program considered new and innovative or a program that illustrates exceptional practice in either library services (for MLS librarians) or learning support services (for support staff), we encourage you to nominate one per campus. The program must have been in existence for the 2013-2014 academic year (July 2013-June 2014). The nomination should include an abstract of the program and any supporting documentation. The nominee must also be a member of AFC by the application deadline to apply. By mid-September, finalists will be asked to present their entry at the AFC Fall Convention in Sandestin, October 29-31, 2014. The winners will receive $500.
