Nominations are being accepted for the 2020 Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) Outstanding Collaboration Citation.
Deadline for nominations is December 1.

Outstanding Collaboration Citation

This award recognizes and encourages collaborative problem-solving efforts in the areas of acquisition, access, management, preservation or archiving of library materials. It recognizes actions, services or products that improve and benefit the providing and managing of library collections. The citation may be presented to two or more individuals or groups who have participated jointly in an appropriate achievement. Accomplishments that expose problems may be as valuable as successes. The citation will be presented in a year when an achievement of merit has occurred.

Recognized forms of collaboration must be between library personnel and other individuals or such groups as publishers, vendors, cultural organizations, government agencies, philanthropic organizations and the like. Results of a collaborative effort must demonstrate advancement in collection management or technical services working environments, such as:

  *   Development of industry standards (licensing, COUNTER, technology)
  *   Breaking barriers to enable budget conscientious actions (inflation control, setting serials pricing far enough in advance of renewals, cooperative cataloging or preservation initiatives)
  *   Innovative publications products or services that meet an industry need (ERMI, first link resolver, software to enhance productivity or user access)

Completed nominations should be sent to Melanie McGurr<mailto:mmcgurr1 at uakron.edu>, (mmcgurr1 at uakron.edu<mailto:mmcgurr1 at uakron.edu>) chair, Citation Jury. The deadline for submissions and supporting materials is December 1, 2020.
