The ACRL Distance Learning Section Awards Committee would like to congratulate Victoria (Torrie) Raish (Pennsylvania State University) on receiving the 2019 Routledge Distance Learning Librarianship Conference Sponsorship Award!

Raish’s accomplishments will be formally recognized at a luncheon at ALA Annual 2019 in Washington, D.C.
