ALA/CLA joint Annual Conference in Toronto.

The awards cover up to $1,000 in expenses and are donated by EBSCO Subscription Services.

This year’s winners are:

  • Corrine L. Alldridge, Mayfield Heights, Ohio
  • Nichole J. Broemer, Harker Heights, Texas
  • Li Chen, Marietta, Ga.
  • Barbara D’Angelo, Mesa, Ariz.

  • Donna Mandel, San Francisco Melissa Rice, Morton Grove, Ill.
  • Yuwu Song, Gilbert, Ariz.
  • Amy Steward, College Park, Ga.
  • Laura A. Sullivan, Highland Heights, Ky.

The award panels of the EBSCO winners and all the ALA recognition award winners will be on display at the ALA Annual Conference in Toronto near the registration area.
