The BRASS Vendor Relations Committee was proud this year to have secured the BRASS Business Expert Press Award for Academic Librarians. In our role as the ad hoc award committee, we were pleased to select Joel Glogowski from Georgia State University from among a large and impressive pool of nominees as the inaugural recipient. We have been continuing to assist the BRASS 25th Anniversary Planning Committee by reaching out to new vendors and working with longtime partners to help secure funding for the celebration event planned for 2013 in Chicago. Other ideas for connecting to and collaborating with BRASS vendors in order to provide additional value to BRASS members are in the works.
