In 1974, Anotnija Prelec accepted the challenge of establishing the new Health Sciences Library at Stony Brook University. Over the next 26 years, Toni built the HSC Library’s collections with passion and zeal. Her extraordinary knowledge of scientific publishing, coupled with her warmth, vitality and wit, endeared her to everyone she met over the years. The Antonija Prelec Memorial Fund was established in honor of Antonija (Toni) Prelec by her family, friends and colleagues at the Health Sciences Center (HSC) of Stony Brook University. The purpose of the fund is to continue Toni’s pursuit of excellence in medical librarianship and to improve the information services provided by the HSC Library. The Endowment provides grants for an annual visit and lecture by the Antonija Prelec Visiting Scholar, selected for his or her expertise in medical librarianship and information sciences.
This year’s lecturer is Oya Rieger, PhD, Associate University Librarian, Cornell University Library and arXiv Program Director. For more information, please visit our event page.
