Call for nominees: Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) Awards
The ALA Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) is now accepting nominations (until January 15 2017) for two awards created to recognize excellence in information literacy and instruction. The LIRT Librarian Recognition Award is presented to an individual librarian in appreciation for her/his contributions to the field, while the LIRT Innovation in Instruction Award is given to a Library that demonstrates innovation in support of information literacy and instruction. The awards will be presented at the American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago in June 2017. Award winners receive a US $1,000 cash award, a plaque, and a US $500 travel stipend to be used to attend the ALA Annual Conference. Awards are sponsored by the Library Instruction Roundtable.
