Submit a Nomination for the Prestigious Kilgour Technology Research Award

  • 1.  Submit a Nomination for the Prestigious Kilgour Technology Research Award

    Posted Jan 10, 2022 11:26 AM

    Greetings,

    Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures (Core) and OCLC, Inc. invite nominations for the 2022 Frederick G. Kilgour Award for Research in Library and Information Technology. The deadline for nominations is January 31, 2022.

    The Kilgour Research Award recognizes research relevant to the development of information technologies, in particular research showing promise of having a positive and substantive impact on any aspect of the publication, storage, retrieval, and dissemination of information or how information and data are manipulated and managed. The winner receives $2,000 cash, an award citation, and an expense-paid trip (airfare and two nights lodging) to the 2022 ALA Annual Conference.

    Nominations will be accepted from any member of the American Library Association. Nominating letters must address how the research is relevant to libraries; is creative in its design or methodology; builds on existing research or enhances potential for future exploration; and/or solves an important current problem in the delivery of information resources. A curriculum vitae and a copy of several seminal publications by the nominee must be included. Preference will be given to completed research over work in progress. The intent is to recognize a body of work probably spanning years, if not the majority of a career.

    Submit nominations online no later than January 31, 2022.

    The Kilgour Research Award will be presented at the Core President's Program during the 2022 ALA Annual Conference.
