The committee is particularly pleased that the winners include a colleague who is just beginning their MLA career as well as an experienced librarian exploring new and interesting technologies to enhance research. This is exactly what this grant was aiming to achieve – encouraging our colleagues interested in educational technologies to attend the MLA Annual Meeting and to learn and contribute to the profession as a whole.
Congratulations to Emily and Diane!!
