Margaret Mann Citation
Deadline for nominations is December 1.
The Margaret Mann Citation is awarded by the ALCTS Cataloging and Classification Section for outstanding professional achievement in cataloging or classification either through publication of significant professional literature, participation in professional cataloging associations, or valuable contributions to practice in individual libraries.
The Margaret Mann Citation Committee bases its selection on nominations made by members of the profession or friends of the profession—anyone with a worthy candidate is urged to nominate that person.
Achievements to be considered include:
- Notable publications, such as an article, pamphlet, or book;
- Outstanding contribution to the activities of professional cataloging associations;
- Outstanding contribution to the technical improvement of cataloging and classification and/or the introduction of a new technique of recognized importance;
- Outstanding contribution in the area of teaching cataloging and classification.
Except in unusual circumstances, the achievement shall have culminated within the last five years.
Nationality and professional association membership are not among the criteria. Current employees of OCLC are not eligible for the award.
The nomination shall include the formal statement of nomination with some rationale and a resume or narrative summary of the nominee's career and achievements. Nominations of those nominated in a given year but who are not selected for the citation that year will be forwarded to the following year's committee for automatic reconsideration. Further consideration beyond this requires renomination.
Endorsements or "seconds" are welcomed inasmuch as they provide substantive information on the achievements of the candidate, but the number of additional letters is not the sole determining factor in the selection.
The winner receives a citation and OCLC donates a $2,000 scholarship to the U.S. or Canadian library school of the winner's choice.
The award is presented during the American Library Association Annual Conference each year at the ALCTS Awards Ceremony and Membership Meeting.
