New Award: ALCTS Outstanding Collaborat...

ALCTS Outstanding Collaboration Citation recognizes and encourages

collaborative problem-solving efforts in the areas of acquisition,

access, management, preservation or archiving of library materials. It

recognizes a demonstrated benefit from actions, services, or products

that improve and benefit providing and managing 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 groups such 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.

Examples (descriptive, not inclusive):

- 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)

The deadline for nominations and supporting materials is December 1,

2006. For additional information, visit the ALCTS Web site at ALCTS is a division of the American Library

Association (ALA).

Send nominations, along with written justification for the citation

in terms of demonstrated outcomes in work achieved through actions,

services, or products; how the achievement contributed to the

fulfillment of needs in the work of collection management or technical

services and any other factors relevant to the merit of the achievement
