McCain Library’s Award for Aspiring Librarians – Call for Nominations (by March 20)

Each spring, McCain Library sends out a call for nominations for the Arseneau Award.  This award was created by the Agnes Scott College Class of 1989 to honor the memory of their classmate Marjo Dobbs Arseneau, an academic librarian whose life was cut short by cancer.  At least nine past winners have gone on to complete library-related Master’s degrees and to pursue careers in libraries.

To be eligible (self-nominations are accepted), a nominee must be a current Agnes Scott College junior or senior:

  • committed to pursuing a career in librarianship by continuing her education in a Master of Library Science or Information Management program 


  • who has made significant contributions to McCain Library while working as a library student assistant.
The Arseneau Award includes a monetary prize intended to assist with graduate school costs. This year’s distribution will be $800.
A Google Form on which to submit your own information or a nomination (due by 5:00 pm on Friday, March 20) is available here: and on the library website under About/Awards.  (You will need to log in to Scottie Mail to access it.) 
People other than the McCain Library staff will help with the selection process, so please be thorough in completing the form.  Thank you for your assistance.  Any questions may be directed to Elizabeth Bagley.
