Nominations sought for RUSA Emerald Research Grant Award

The Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS) of the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), announces a call for nominations for the 2008 Emerald Research Grant Award.

Two $5,000 cash awards, donated by Emerald Group Publishing Limited, will be given to ALA members seeking support to conduct research in business librarianship. Emerald Group Publishing Limited, established in 1967 with headquarters in Bradford, England, is the world’s leading language publisher of academic and professional literature in the fields of management, library services and engineering.

"Business Librarians are curious and entrepreneurial professionals," said Jennifer Boettcher, BRASS Development Committee chair. "I am sure the results of the research will benefit the field of librarianship in public and academic business collections, education, or community development."
