Essay Competition. This competition, first established in 1992, and 
renamed in memory of the late Margaret McKinley in 1993, is intended to 
encourage students in library and information science programs to 
consider the benefits of participation in the activities of 
professional societies.

will receive one-year memberships in ASIST. 

ELIGIBILITY: All students enrolled in library and information science 
programs, including those graduating in Spring 2002 at universities 
within the areas represented by the Los Angeles Chapter of ASIST  
(Hawaii, California, and Australia) are eligible to enter. Membership 
in ASIST is not required to enter the competition. 

TO ENTER: Compose an essay that addresses the following question: 
"What specific benefits do I expect to derive from attending the ASIST 
2002 Annual Meeting? How will I integrate these benefits into the start 
of my new career?"  The theme is described in more detail on the ASIST 
Meeting Web page, http://www.asis.org/am02cfp.html. Essays should not
