ACRL Seeks Nominations for 2021 Awards

Every year, ACRL celebrates the opportunity to honor the outstanding achievements of the academic and research library community. Made possible by generous corporate support, the annual presentation of our prestigious awards and grants to these deserving individuals and institutions enables ACRL to honor the very best in academic librarianship. This year, ACRL once again seeks to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of our peers.

Members are an integral part of ACRL’s successful awards program. Please consider acknowledging those who have influenced your thinking, practice, and growth as an academic or research library worker. ACRL urges you to nominate colleagues whose work you admire, and whose contributions merit recognition by the profession. Your nominations will ensure that the pool of candidates for each award remains both competitive and distinguished.

Nominations for most awards must be submitted by December 4, 2020.

More information, including award details, submission procedures, past winners, criteria, and contact information, is available in the awards section of the ACRL website or by contacting Chase Ollis at
