SLIS Student wins MLA Scholarship

Christine Remenih was selected by the Board of Directors of the Medical Library Association to be the 2017 Medical Library Association Scholarship recipient. The MLA awards this scholarship in the amount of up to $5000 to a student who, according to the scholarship description, “shows excellence in scholarship and potential for accomplishment in health sciences librarianship.” Remenih, a member of the 12th National Online MLIS Cohort, will be honored at the President’s Awards Dinner at MLA’s annual meeting in Seattle, Washington. Remenih is the second SLIS student to be awarded the MLA Scholarship, following Cathy Murch, a member of the 2nd National Online MLIS Cohort in 2007. Murch is currently a Bioinformatician and Systems Librarian at Lake Hospital System in northeastern Ohio. Please join SLIS faculty and staff in congratulating Christine Remenih for this well-deserved honor!
