Hodges Award nominations deadline extended
The American Library Association (ALA) Intellectual Freedom Round Table
<http://www.ala.org/ifrt>(IFRT) is extending the deadline for nominations
for its 2016 Gerald Hodges Intellectual Freedom Chapter Relations Award.
The Gerald Hodges Intellectual Freedom Chapter Relations Award recognizes
an intellectual freedom focused organization that has developed a strong
multi-year, ongoing program or a single, one-year project that exemplifies
support for intellectual freedom, patron confidentiality and
anti-censorship efforts. The award consists of $1,000 and a citation. *The
IFRT is now accepting nominations through March 1, 2016.*
The award is named after Gerald Hodges, who joined the ALA staff in 1989 as
director of membership services and the Chapter Relations Office
<http://www.ala.org/offices/cro>. Hodges was the associate director of
communications and marketing at his death in 2006, but intellectual freedom
and chapter relations were still his passions. A charter member of the ALA
Legacy Society <http://www.ala.org/plannedgiving/ala-legacy-society>, he
willed a portion of his estate to support ALA's intellectual freedom
efforts. Memorial contributions in recognition of Hodges came from many
friends, colleagues and ALA chapters following the establishment of the
Gerald Hodges Fund.
Nominations and supporting evidence should be submitted online
or to: Shumeca Pickett, ALA, 50 E. Huron St., Chicago, IL 60611.
Telephone: 312-280-4220 or 800-545-2433, ext. 4220. Fax: 312-280-4227.

The Intellectual Freedom Round Table (IFRT) provides a forum for the

intellectual freedom matters; promotes a greater opportunity for
involvement among the members of the ALA in defense of intellectual
freedom; promotes a greater feeling of responsibility in the implementation
of ALA policies on intellectual freedom.
