("Mitzi") Perdue, in memory of Frank Perdue Thomson Gale ProQuest Company ABOUT THE 2006 HEALTH INFORMATION AWARDS FOR LIBRARIES “One of the goals of the Commission is to strengthen the relevance of libraries in the lives of Americans, and I can think of no better way to do this than to identify and recognize library programs that help increase awareness of healthy lifestyles. The NCLIS Health Information Awards for Libraries does just that, and at the same time enables the Commission to collect information about these successful programs and disseminate that information, so that other libraries and health information organizations can study and, we trust, emulate these best practices.” C. Beth Fitzsimmons, Ph.D. Chairman, NCLIS ABOUT NCLIS The U.S. National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (NCLIS) is a permanent, independent agency of the Federal government charged by Public Law 91-345 to advise the President and Congress on national and international library and information policies, to appraise and assess the adequacies and deficiencies of library and information resources and services, and to develop overall plans for meeting national library and information needs.
