ACRL’s Awards program will continue to be on hold for the 2023-2024 award season, during which time nominations will not be accepted or juried and no recipients will be chosen for any ACRL awards. 

The Women & Gender Studies Section awards are given annually to honor distinguished academic librarians who have made outstanding contributions to women & gender studies through accomplishments and service to the profession. The awards recognize those who have made long-standing contributions to the field during a career (the Career Achievement award) and those who have made significant one-time contributions (the Significant Achievement award).

The awards are sponsored by Duke University Press and each winner will receive a check for $750 and a plaque.  The awards are presented at the ALA Annual Conference. To submit a nomination or to see a list of past award winners, please see the links below:
