ACRL Seeks Nominations for 2013 Awards

For more than three-quarters of a century, ACRL has been committed to celebrating the achievements of academic and research librarians through the presentation of awards, grants and fellowships. With almost $35,000 donated annually by corporate sponsors, ACRL has and will continue to nominate, select and honor the very best in academic librarianship.

Members are an integral part of ACRL’s successful awards program. ACRL urges members to nominate colleagues whose work has influenced their thinking and growth as an academic librarian and whose contributions merit recognition by the profession. Member nominations will ensure that the pool of candidates for each award remains both competitive and distinguished. Nominations and supporting materials for most awards must be submitted by December 7, 2012.

More information, including submission procedures, past winners, criteria and contact information, is available in the awards section of the ACRL website or by contacting ACRL Program Coordinator Casey Kinson at (312) 280-2511 or ckinson@ala.org.
