“The committee selected Maria T. Accardi based on her noteworthy accomplishment, the 2013 book ‘Feminist Pedagogy for Library Instruction,’ published by Library Juice Press,” said award Chair Jennifer Mayer, associate librarian at the University of Wyoming. “The committee was impressed by her book-length treatment of the intersection of information literacy and feminist theory, which is unique, important and fills a gap in the literature.”
