(via Reina Williams, juror on the Librarians without Borders® Ursula Poland International Scholarship jury of the Medical Library Association)

Ursula H. (Anker) Poland (1922-2009) was a distinguished MLA member, recipient of the Marcia C. Noyes Award, Fellow of MLA, and Janet Doe Lecturer.  Poland’s 1982 Doe Lecture is one of MLA’s most important statements about MLA’s international interests and accomplishments. Poland used the Doe Lecture forum, other publications and activities, and her own career as a model to encourage MLA members to enrich their careers and approach to the practice of health sciences librarianship through international connections and experiences.

The Librarians without Borders® Ursula Poland International Scholarship helps fund an international project by a US or Canadian health sciences librarian. Endowed in 2014, this award is designed to enable the MLA to help fund a wide range of individuals whose projects are related to health sciences librarianship in an international context. The scholarship recipient receives a certificate at the MLA annual meeting and a scholarship award of $1,000 to fund expenses associated with an international health sciences library project.

Could you be the next Ursula Poland International Scholarship awardee?
