Honoring Excellence - Achievement in Library Diversity Research

Each year the Diversity Research Grant Advisory Committee seeks to recognize an individual for advancing research that informs diversity, equity and outreach efforts in Library and Information Science by honoring them with an Achievement in Library Diversity Research designation. Achievement is defined as a body of published work or a groundbreaking piece whose dissemination advances our understanding of or sparks new research in the areas of diversity, equity and outreach. Entries are not limited to peer reviewed, scholarly publication. We welcome open access and other forms of published dissemination. Nominations are accepted year-round and an honoree will be selected from the pool of nominees received by October 1 with the award presented at the ALA Midwinter Meeting News You Can Use Update on currently funded Diversity Research Grants.  Honorees receive complimentary conference registration, a plaque and an opportunity to make remarks during the presentation of the award.

Self-nominations for the award are welcome. Complete the short form below to submit your nomination.
