Copyright Clearance Center Sponsors SLA’s Rising Star Program
SLA 2014 Gold Partner to Recognize Information Industry Up-and-Comers
Alexandria, Virginia, 17 April 2014–Up-and-coming leaders within the information profession will be honored at the SLA 2014 Annual Conference thanks to the Copyright Clearance Center, which is partnering with SLA to sponsor the association’s Rising Star Program.
“We are excited about Copyright Clearance Center’s investment in the future of our profession,” said Janice Lachance, SLA’s chief executive officer. “Their sponsorship of the Rising Star Program provides SLA with the platform to recognize our true up-and-comers–information professionals who have accomplished great things within five years of earning their graduate degrees. The partnership, by fostering our Rising Stars’ continued industry leadership and innovation, will have an invaluable impact on the information science industry and workforce for years to come.”
The award will be presented to as many as five early-career information professionals at SLA’s 2014 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO (Vancouver, 8-10 June), of which Copyright Clearance Center is a Gold Partner.
The Rising Star Program, in addition to honoring the award recipients during the conference Awards Ceremony, also includes the popular Rising Stars and SLA Fellows Roundtable, now in its fifth year.
This conference session, scheduled for Monday, 9 June, at 12:00 p.m. PDT, will couple the insights and early-career perspectives of the Rising Stars with those of the newest SLA Fellows, mid-career professionals who have become leaders within the information industry. Potential topics include non-traditional career paths, breaking into the information industry effectively, and the impact of new tools and technology on the way information services are perceived and valued.
SLA will soon be announcing the recipients of the Rising Star Award, along with the members who will receive SLA Fellow designation.
