Ross Atkinson Award deadline Dec. 3


I urge you to consider who among our ALCTS colleagues is deserving of the Ross Atkinson Award this year. Ross had a profound impact not only on the work of this division, but on all contemporary librarianship. This award in his name honors one of our most influential members and is one of the most prestigious our division offers. The deadline is extended to December 3 so please do not hesitate in sending me your nomination.

Thanks so much!
