The American Library Association's (ALA) Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) welcomes submissions for two awards created to recognize excellence in information literacy and instruction. Submissions from all types of libraries (public, school, special, academic) are encouraged. Winners will receive a $1,000 award, a plaque, and a $500 travel stipend to be used to attend the ALA 2018 Annual Conference in New Orleans, where the awards will be presented.
The LIRT Librarian Recognition Award honors a librarian for her/his contributions to information literacy and instruction. The LIRT Innovation in Instruction Award honors a library for their innovative approach to information literacy and instruction.
Submissions will be accepted until January 15, 2018. For full details on how to apply for these awards or to nominate someone to receive them, please see the LIRT Awards page .
We look forward to receiving your submissions!
The ALA Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR) serves as the liaison to LIRT.
