CS-SIS Grants Committee Announces Awards for Annual Meeting

Since 2000 the Computing Services-SIS has provided a number of grants for registration to the AALL Annual Meeting. The Grants Committee is pleased to announce the 2006 recipients of the CS-SIS grants. Our three grant recipients are very worthy candidates who hold promise of future and continuing involvement in the law library profession. Marin Dell is a new librarian at the Florida State University Law Library, and is pursuing postgraduate study in law librarianship as well. Frank Lima is the new Computer Services and Reference Librarian at Northern Illinois University Law School. Hadi Amjadi is the Systems Librarian at Golden Gate University Law Library, and has been active in the CS-SIS. Please take a moment to seek them out and congratulate them on receiving a grant. Many thanks to the Grants Committee members for all their hard work: James Gernert (Chair), Irene Good, Robert Jacoby, Judith Kaul, Cynthia Lewis, Melissa Serfasss, Bonnie Shucha, and Eric Young.
