Bruce Rosenstein (DC/SLA) and Denise Callihan have been named 2012 recipients of the Special Libraries Association’s (SLA) Rose L. Vormelker Award. They will both be honored on stage at SLA 2012 in Chicago, before Guy Kawasaki’s keynote address.
The award is presented to SLA members for exceptional service to the information profession through the education and mentoring of students and working professionals. The recipients are being honored for their dedication to mentoring, outstanding instruction in graduate school settings, and their own professional achievements.
“I’m honored to have Bruce and Denise as members of SLA’s community,” said SLA President Brent Mai. “They are consummate professionals, and most deserving recipients of this award. Not only do they put forth the effort to prepare newly minted professionals and students for our rapidly changing industry, they are prime examples of the importance and reward of being an information professional.”
