contributions may have been made in New England itself by librarians from
throughout the United States, or nationally by librarians residing in New
England, through publications, service, or innovations in practice. The
NETSL Executive Board members select a recipient based on nominations
received, at their February meeting. If none of the nominees in a given year
are deemed worthy, the Board reserves the right to suspend the Award for
that year.

 The next NETSL Award will be presented at the annual NETSL spring
conference at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass. On April 12,

rationale for nomination and, if a resume of the nominee is not appended, a
