The Collection Management Section (CMS) of the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) honors an individual and/or group whose electronic resources management achievements could include, but are not limited to:
·        Building and managing new types of electronic collections and materials
·        Addressing selection issues and processes for electronic resources
·        Creating effective organizational structures for the workflow management and development of electronic resource collections
·        Increasing visibility, discovery and user access to electronic library resources

Past award winners include:
·        Corey Halaychik for his leadership in improving workflow management in both the licensing of electronic resources through the University of Tennessee master agreements program and for co-founding The Collective.
·        Benjamin Heet for demonstrating an extraordinary commitment to innovation in his work developing and promoting the open-source CORAL Electronic Resources Management system.
·        Jill Emery & Graham Stone for their work on the TERMS (Techniques for Electronic Resource Management) and OAWAL (Open Access Workflows for Academic Libraries) projects, which crowd-sourced the creation of best practices for managing electronic resources, and exemplify innovative practices for the worldwide library community.

The award is presented during the American Library Association Annual Conference, and the recipient receives a citation and a $2,000 award generously donated by ProQuest.
