In recognition of the accomplishments of librarians and libraries who promote information literacy, the Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) will host an Awards Ceremony and Reception from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm on Sunday, June 28 during the ALA 2015 Annual Conference in San Francisco. The event will be held in the Hotel Nikko – Golden Gate.
This year we will be honoring Caroline Sinkinson, Teaching and Learning Librarian at the University of Colorado, Boulder, winner of the 2016 LIRT Librarian Recognition Award, and the SUNY Geneseo Milne Library, winner of the 2016 LIRT Innovation in Instruction Award.
Award recipients will be presented with a $1,000 cash prize and a plaque during the ceremony. The honorees will briefly discuss their work in forwarding information literacy, followed by a reception.
All conference attendees are welcomed and encouraged to attend. Add the event to your calendar using the Conference scheduler.
This is the third year that LIRT has offered the Library Instruction Awards.
