Trenton Boyd Wins MLA Award

Trenton Boyd, head of the Zalk Veterinary Medical Library, has received the 2009 Murray Gottlieb Prize from the Medical Library Association. The Murray Gottlieb Prize is awarded annually for the best unpublished essay on the history of medicine and allied sciences written by a health sciences librarian. The Gottlieb Prize was established in 1956 by Ralph and Jo Grimes of the Old Hickory Bookshop, Brinklow, MD, in order to recognize and stimulate the health sciences librarians’ interest in the history of medicine.

The title of Boyd’s paper is “The Lost History of American Veterinary Medicine: the Need for Preservation.” A version of the paper has already been accepted for presentation at the 2009 ICML/ICAHIS Conference in Brisbane Australia in September of this year.

Congratulations, Trenton!
