GOBI Library Solutions from EBSCO provides funding for an Excellence in Academic Libraries Award Program to recognize an outstanding community college, college, and university library each year. This award is to recognize the accomplishments of librarians and other library staff as they come together as members of a team to support the mission of their institution. GOBI's gift of $12,000 provides a $3,000 gift to each of the three winning libraries and $3,000 to support travel by an ACRL officer to the three award ceremonies.
