In Memory of Birdie MacLennan

Hello NASIG Members,

The NASIG Executive Board has approved a donation to the University of Vermont Foundation in honor of Birdie MacLennan on behalf of NASIG.

Also, the board has approved the creation of the NASIG Birdie MacLennan Award.  This award will be a conference scholarship similar in amount to the Horizon award with an emphasis on mid-career professional (5 years or more) with outstanding achievement in the areas of the Core Competencies for E-Resources, mentoring, and innovation. It will be offered yearly and solicitation for nominees would come in the normal awards cycle. Those who have attended NASIG conferences in past years, as well as those who have not attended will be eligible for the award.

At the NASIG conference this year (May 1-4, 2014), a memory book will be available to record your memories of Birdie.  After the conference, I will send the book to Birdie’s family.

Thank you for your many suggestions and thoughts on memorials for Birdie.
Discussions are ongoing, and additional information will be relayed as confirmed.

Thanks,
Joyce Tenney
NASIG President
