About the Award
The Grieg Aspnes Memorial Award is in honor of Grieg Aspnes, a talented librarian at Cargill, a past president of the Special Libraries Association, and an active leader in its Minnesota Chapter, Information Technology and Advertising Divisions, and Education Committee. Grieg was also a strong advocate of the information profession and was a guest lecturer in the library schools at St. Catherine’s and the University of Minnesota. This award, made only to St. Catherine University students, is funded by the Minnesota Chapter of the Special Libraries for the purpose of encouraging the recipient to pursue a career in special librarianship. St. Catherine University expresses its appreciation to the Aspnes family and the Minnesota Chapter of SLA for providing this grant award.
