2011 Lucille M. Wert Student Scholarship


The Lucille M. Wert Student Scholarship is awarded annually and is designed to help persons with an interest in the fields of chemistry and information to pursue graduate study in library, information, or computer science. The CINF Awards Committee reviewed the applications during the Spring ACS Meeting, and is very pleased to announce that the 2011 recipient is Dr. Elsa Alvaro.

Elsa has BS and PhD degrees in chemistry from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain, and she is currently enrolled in the Master of Library Science degree program at the School of Library and Information Science at Indiana University Bloomington, where she is the Charles A. and Charles H. Davis fellow in Scientific Information and a Merit Scholar. She is also a graduate assistant at the Chemistry Library and Life Science Library at Indiana University Bloomington, and her avowed calling is to become a chemistry librarian in a research institution.

Travel plans permitting, the Scholarship ($1500) will be awarded to Elsa during the CINF Luncheon at the Fall ACS Meeting in Denver in August.

Congratulations to Elsa!

Phil McHale, Chair, CINF Awards Committee
