This year's winners are Deborah Battisti, Harrisburgh, Pa.; John Kyle Banerjee, Corvallis, Ore.; Kirstin M. Dougan, Madison, Wis.; Catherine A. Harmon, Saline, Mich.; Sue Hunter, Tempe, Ariz.; Sarah M. Killoran, Massena, N.Y.; Angela Leeper, Wake Forest, N.C.; Jennifer Mott, Spring Lake, N.C.; Sanya P. Oldland, Elizabethville, Pa.; Gina C. Williams, Walkertown, N.C.

The award panels featuring the EBSCO winners and other ALA recognition award winners will be on display at the ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco near the registration area.
