Winner Description: 
Bill Jones and Ben Rawlins, both of the State University of New York (SUNY)-Geneseo Milne Library, for their work on the Openly Available Sources Integrated Search (OASIS) project
Winner Blurb: 

“The OASIS search tool was developed to address the issue of college affordability,” said award chair Susan A. Schreiner, access services librarian at Pittsburg State University. “This tool provides faculty the means to provide free textbooks and other resources and reduces the financial burden on students leading to a positive impact on student learning and retention.”

“Institutions across the world have added OASIS to their websites and their communities can now search open access materials with ease and speed,” continued Schreiner. “The committee felt the timeliness and depth of the search tool, the willingness of the creators to share it with other institutions around the world, and the financial impact it has on students all over the world, make it a clear winner for this year’s award.”
