Project Euclid Receives 2011 PAM Division Award
Project Euclid — the premier platform and information community for mathematics and statistics resources from independent publishers — received the 2011 Division Award from the Physics-Astronomy-Mathematics (PAM) Division of the Special Libraries Association. Project Euclid is jointly managed by Cornell University Library and Duke University Press.
Given annually, this award recognizes significant contributions to the literature of physics, mathematics, or astronomy, and honors work that demonstrably improves the exchange of information within these three disciplines. The award also takes into consideration projects that benefit libraries.
“It is an honor for Project Euclid to receive the Special Library Association’s PAM Award,” said Mira Waller, Project Euclid Manager. “PAM is a community of peers and a strong voice for librarians and information experts around the world. In receiving this award I feel that Project Euclid is fulfilling its core mission of disseminating scholarly information in the fields of mathematics and statistics.”
“The PAM Division Award is a real honor,” said David Ruddy, Cornell’s Project Euclid lead and Director of Scholarly Communications Services at Cornell University Library. “It is also validation that through strong collaborations the academy can effectively address challenges facing scholarly communications.”
Cornell University Library launched Project Euclid in 2000. In 2008, Cornell and Duke University Press established a collaborative partnership agreement to jointly manage and expand the project. Its mission is to advance scholarly communication in the field of theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics. It is designed to address the unique needs of low-cost independent and society journals.
