Dear ILL and Resource Sharing Colleagues --

This message is being cross-posted. Please feel free to post this

message to other listservs or professional publications that you think

are appropriate.

The American Library Association is seeking nominees for the eighth

annual Virginia Boucher/OCLC Distinguished ILL Librarian award which

recognizes and honors a librarian for outstanding professional

achievement, leadership, and contributions to interlibrary loan and

document delivery through publication, during the previous two years,

of significant professional literature, participation in professional

associations, and/or innovative approaches to practice in individual

libraries. Nominations must be submitted by Friday, December 15, 2006

to the award committee chair, Denise Forro, either by email, fax, or

snail mail - see the signature file at the end of this message for

address information.

The candidate must have been employed in a library and held some

responsibility for his or her institution's ILL, document delivery, or

resource sharing services at the time the contribution being honored

was made. Contributions supporting a nomination must have occurred

during the two years prior to the nomination deadline. The candidate's

achievement must be accomplished in one of the following areas:

1. Planning and implementing an innovative or pioneering approach to

ILL/document delivery service that is recognized as a model on a

regional or national level.

2. Notable publication, such as an article, book, or conference paper,

which is deemed significant in the literature of the field.

3. A record of sustained, recognized, and exceptional participation in

regional, national, or international associations devoted to the

promotion of ILL/document delivery in a library environment.

Nominations take the form of a letter, which includes a formal

statement of nomination with some rationale, plus a resume of the

nominee's career and achievements. Please also include contact

The award consists of $2,000 and a citation. Again, the deadline for
