The recipient of this year’s Cairns award was an active member of HSLIC throughout her time at MaineGeneral Hospital. She has served as HSLIC Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Newsletter Editor, Scholarship Committee member and meeting panelist. She was equally active in NAHSL. The year she served as Chair Elect of NAHSL, the Chair passed away suddenly and she hurriedly took over and chaired the conference in her stead. The Cairns recipient has served as a source of information for HSLIC members and a source of inspiration for all health sciences librarians. She was always ready to serve where needed and never did anything halfway. Our Cairns recipient for 2004 is Nancy Greenier.
