A Joint CHLA-MLA research collaboration wins the 2015 “Ida and George Eliot Prize”

I am happy to report that MLA’s Ida and George Eliot Prize for 2015 goes to the Canadian-American research collaboration entitled Effects of librarian-provided services in healthcare setting: a systematic review.flags

The paper is a true joint CHLA-MLA research collaboration. The Ida and George Eliot Prize is presented annually for a work published in the preceding calendar year and that has been judged most effective in furthering medical librarianship. The award will be presented at this year’s MLA conference Awards Ceremony.

Effects of librarian-provided services in healthcare settings: a systematic review.
J Am Med Inform Assoc. 2014 Nov-Dec;21(6):1118-24. doi:10.1136/amiajnl-2014-002825. Epub 2014 May 28.

The Ida and George Eliot Prize was established by Ida and George Eliot, friends of the Medical Library Association and owners of Eliot Health Sciences Books, Inc., Long Island City, New York. In the mid-1980’s Login Brothers Book Company acquired the company and continued to support the prize. MLA now supports the award. The recipient receives a certificate at the association’s annual meeting and a cash award of $200.00 after the annual meeting.
