Congratulations to the Special Libraries Association’s
Student Group (SLAPSG) here at SIS! On June 4, they
were honored with the "2007 SAAAC Student Group Merit
Award for Creative Use of Electronic Resources." The
Special Libraries Association (SLA) bestowed the Merit
Award on this energetic group for their work in redesigning
the SLAPSG website to include a blogging feature. In
particular, the group was recognized for their use of technology
to make a recent panel discussion on field placements available
to the public. The following students were recipients
of the award and serve as officers of the SLAPSG:
Steve Ely, President
Laura Greenlee, Secretary/Treasurer
Margo Sussman, Membership Coordinator
Heather Yager, Webmaster.
The SLAPSG Advisor, Judith Jablonski and the SLA Pittsburgh
Chapter’s Student Relations Chair, Donna Beck, were
also noted for their support of this project.
