applications for ACRL awards are due
December 5, 2008! These special recognitions enhance the sense of
personal growth and accomplishment of ACRL members, provide membership
role models, and strengthen the image of membership in the eyes of
leadership, and the academic community as a whole.
ACRL asks you to remember the significant achievements of
those we've honored in the past and recognize the contributions of your
with your nominations for the 2009 awards.

ACRL is a division of the American Library Association
(ALA), representing nearly 13,000 academic and research librarians and
interested individuals. ACRL is the only individual membership
North America that develops programs, products and services to meet the
needs of academic and research librarians. Its initiatives enable the
education community to understand the role that academic libraries play
teaching, learning and research environments.

produced a focus on information that is unaware of its history.” –
