ACRL Awards Program

The Association of College and Research Libraries Association Awards Program honors the best and brightest stars of academic librarianship.

Nominations for most 2018 awards were due December 1, 2017. ACRL award committees will mmet and make their selections, and winners will be announced following the 2018 ALA Midwinter Meeting.

20 ACRL awards recognize and honor the professional contributions and achievements of your peers. This special recognition by the Association of College and Research Libraries enhances the sense of personal growth and accomplishment of our members, provides our membership with role models, and strengthens the image of our membership in the eyes of employers, leadership, and the academic community as a whole. We ask you to remember the significant achievements of those we've honored in the past and recognize the contributions of your peers with your nominations for the 2018 awards.
