*YALSA has launched the new Teen Book Finder Database, which is a one-stop shop for finding selected lists and award winners. Users can search this free resource by award, list name, year, author, genre and more, as well as print customizable lists. This new resource will replace the individual award and list web pages currently on YALSA’s site that are not searchable and that are organized only by year.
Individuals who wish to buy small quantities of seals can find them in the ALA Online Store. Publishers wishing to buy bulk seals or license seal images can find more information by consulting YALSA's Award Seals Usage Guidelines and ALA's Seals Sales & Permissions page.
Organizations must obtain the prior written permission of ALA to use the Award seals.
Arrangements can be made through ALA's Rights and Permissions office for publishers/producers who need permission to reproduce the appropriate seal on a paperback edition, book jacket, audio or video cassette, for compact disc cover copies, e-books, etc. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Mary Jo Bolduc, 312-280-5416 or 312-944-8741 (fax) for information.
