ERMD Student Award

The ERMD Student Award recognizes a student who is especially

To be considered for the award, a student must be an SLA member and
write a 300-500 word essay describing his or her interest in the
issues facing information professionals in the environment and natural
resources fields. Essays should be labeled with the student's name,
