ProQuest is the proud sponsor of the Outstanding Service in Librarianship Award, the highest honor granted by the Canadian Library Association (CLA).  Given annually, the award recognizes distinguished service in the field of Canadian librarianship. 

Karen Adams, University Librarian at the University of Manitoba, was recently recognized as the 2013 recipient for her outstanding work and achievements in the development of library service.

ProQuest is also the sponsor of the Distinguished Service to Research Librarianship Award, granted annually to an individual at a Canadian Research Library member institution. Recipients of the award have made a substantial local, national or international contribution to research librarianship. 

This year Pam Bjornson, Director General, Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (NRC - CISTI) was recognized at the CARL general meeting at the end of May.

We had the privilege of learning more about each of these outstanding women and hope you too will enjoying reading more about them. Meet Karen and Pam!
