Dear MALA members
You are all aware that MALA has marched forward and crossed many milestones having several programmes to its credit, ever since its inception. Consequently MALA has a proposal for one more innovative programme for which suggestions are invited from the members and requests to extend your support. It is proposed by some of the members to honour our library professionals who have come a long way and done meritorious service in our profession. The categories under which the honour will be conferred as have been listed below:
Best Librarian Award ( it includes professionals from academic, public and special libraries )
Best Women Librarian Award
Best Young Librarian Award
Best Teacher Award
Lifetime Achievement Award
Outstanding Services Award
Certificate of Appreciation
The major aim of this proposal is to honour our library professionals who deserve to be commended and also to motivate the upcoming younger generation for offering their service to the society with enthusiasm. In general the service of the librarians goes unnoticed and taken for granted by the organizations in which they work. Hence, MALA, which is a committed professional body, felt its responsibility to take up this task of honouring the dedicated service of our library professionals. A committee consisting of senior members who have niched their names in esteemed positions in our profession will be nominated for the selection of the deserving professionals who will be conferred with this prestigious award.
The award will consist of an official document pronouncing him /her as the best professional (in whatever category he/she has been selected) and a memento. The achievements of these honourable professionals will be presented and it will be a memorable function for those who receive this award. MALA requests all the members to kindly contribute to this gracious event for creating an Endowment and cooperate to facilitate MALA, to cross one more milestone. We hope and pray for an undeterred encouragement for this good cause from all of you.
