    We have extended the deadline for nominations for the Oboler Award to December 15th. Please think about works in the area of Intellectual Freedom that you have enjoyed or feel have contributed to furthering the IF discussion. Works that have been published in 2016-2017 are eligible to be nominated.


    The Eli M. Oboler Memorial Award, which consists of $500 and a certificate, is presented for the best published work in the area of intellectual freedom. The award was named for Eli M. Oboler, the extensively published Idaho State University librarian known as a “champion of intellectual freedom who demanded the dismantling of all barriers to freedom of expression.” Works to be considered for the award may be single articles (including review pieces), a series of thematically connected articles, books, or manuals published on the local, state or national level in English or English translation.
