NLA sponsored scholarship

James S. McPhee Memorial Scholarships for Library Science Education
The James S. McPhee Memorial Scholarship fund was created to provide financial support for members in good standing of the Nevada Library Association who are seeking educational opportunities in library science. Persons selected to receive an award from this fund must show potential for emulating James S. McPhee’s contribution to Nevada libraries. Jim spearheaded the Instruction Program at UNLV during the late 1980s and was an advocate for school library programs in southern Nevada. He had a passion for intellectual freedom and kept this ideal at the forefront of Nevada Library Association activities through his position as chair of the NLA Intellectual Freedom Committee. James S. McPhee passed away in 1995.
