Colleagues in Dalhousie's School of Information Management are delighted 
to share this news:

The Association for Library and Information Science Education
(ALISE)* has established a new Award - the ALISE/Norman Horrocks
Leadership Award.  It was announced on 10 January 2008 at the 2008 ALISE
Annual Conference in Philadelphia,PA.   The Award is for an ALISE
member of no more than seven years membership who has demonstrated
outstanding leadership qualities in professional ALISE activities. It will
recognize newer members for service to the Association rather than
limiting recognition at this stage to academic achievement.  The Award
of a Certificate and $500 will be given annually starting at the 2009
ALISE Conference in Denver,CO.

The Award is named for Dr Norman Horrocks, OC. Professor Emeritus, School of
Information Management, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia,**  He
is a Past President of ALISE, former Editor of its "Journal", and
recipient of three of its Awards,

* The Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE)
was established in 1915 as the Association of American Library Schools
(AALS).   AALS had grown out of a series of informal meetings of the Round
Table of Library School Instructors held at the American Library Association
Annual Conferences.  In 1983, the Association changed its name to its
present form to reflect more accurately the mission, goals, and membership
of the Association.  Headquartered in Chicago,IL, ALISE is the lead
organization for library and information science education at master's and
doctoral level in the United States and Canada. In addition its members
include a number of international Schools.
