The Raymond Von Dran Memorial Award is an award open to Catholic University School of Library and Information Science/Department of Library and Information Science (SLIS/LIS) alumni, instituted in the memory of Raymond Von Dran, who served as the second Dean of SLIS (1983-87). Von Dran's final position was Dean of the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University and his obituary can be seen here: http://digital-scholarship.
The LIS Alumni Association will grant this award during its annual Elizabeth W. Stone Lecture in spring 2016.
We are seeking nominations of SLIS/LIS alumni who, through their contributions to the library and information science profession, have exhibited the qualities Von Dran was noted for throughout his career: innovation, collaboration, and leadership.
Nominations (including self-nominations) will be accepted until 11:59 PM, February 29, 2016, and the SLIS Alumni Board will make a selection of the final recipient with approval from the Dean. Please email your nomination by completing the nomination form. This form is set to send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
