  • 1.  LJ Teaching Award Nominations Due September 16

    Posted Sep 10, 2013 08:16 AM

    Do you know a passionate, innovative, student-centered LIS instructor who deserves the recognition of her or his peers? If so, nominate this paragon for the Library Journal Teaching Award, co-sponsored by ProQuest. The winning instructor will receive $5,000 (USD) and an article in the November 15 issue of Library Journal.

    Nominations—being accepted now—are due no later than September 16, 2013.

    If you are a current LIS student, a recent graduate, or a faculty member, help us recognize a deserving LIS instructor who is making a positive difference in the world of librarianship.



    Anyone who has taught a course at an ALA-accredited master’s program since September 3, 2010, as full-time faculty or as an adjunct, is eligible.


    Who can nominate

    Current students or recent graduates and faculty members are encouraged to nominate candidates. Students must have taken a class from the nominee within the past two years.


    What to submit

    Candidates will be evaluated primarily on the basis of the nominating letter (no more than two pages in length or email equivalent), but nominators are welcome to submit also letters of support and supplementary material (examples of coursework, etc.) for the judges to consider.




    As much as possible, please send submissions in an electronic format such as a Word document or a PDF via email to rmiller@mediasourceinc.com.
