Colleagues -

I have been asked to re-post this call for nominations,
as response has been light, this year.

Nominations sought for the 2008 Margaret Mann Citation

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2008 Margaret Mann Citation,
presented by the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services
(ALCTS), a division of the American Library Association. This award is
presented to a cataloger or classifier for outstanding professional achievement
in the areas of cataloging or classification through publication, participation
in professional cataloging associations, or valuable contributions to practice
in individual libraries.

administers the award,

a citation and $2,000 to the library school of the
winner's choice, which is donated by OCLC, Inc.

of the profession or friends of the profession.  Anyone with a worthy
candidate is urged to nominate that person. Achievements to be considered
include: notable publications, such as an article, pamphlet, or book;

associations; outstanding contribution to the technical improvement of
