Dear Colleagues,

We hope you will consider applying for the SIG USE Elfreda A. Chatman Research Award, which seeks to “recognize the best research proposal that falls within the scope of information behavior”. The award consists of a certificate and $1000 to support recipients’ proposed research; the award winners will be formerly recognized at the SIGUSE symposium, to be held at the upcoming ASIST Annual Meeting in St. Louis.

Further information (eligibility, selection criteria, etc.) about the award can be found on the SIG USE website: https://siguse.wordpress.com/elfreda-a-chatman-research-award/

Applications will be due JULY 15, 2015 and can be forwarded to the SIG USE Awards Co-Chairs: Heather O’Brien h.obrien@ubc.ca or Wade Bishop bbisho13@utk.edu.

Please consider applying, and be sure to also note SIG USE’s other awards for travel, innovation, and work to be presented at the ASIST Annual Meeting: https://siguse.wordpress.com/awards/.

Heather O’Brien and Wade Bishop
