2017 Innovation Award Nomination DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 1

The Rethinking Resource Sharing (RRS) Innovation Award recognizes and honors an individual or institution for changes they have made to improve users’ access to information through resource sharing in their library, consortium, state, province or country. The purpose of the award is to showcase innovation in resource sharing around the world and to encourage other librarians and libraries to make changes in their resource sharing operations to improve service to users. RRS looks for efforts in which people have taken the initiative to address a need on their own rather than waiting for others to provide solutions for resource sharing challenges.

The Rethinking Resource Sharing Innovation Award consists of a $500 cash award and a citation honoring the winning nominee. Atlas Systems is once again generously sponsoring the 2017 award.

For more information about the award and application/nomination process, please go to the Innovation Award web page.

The deadline for applications is now May 1, 2017.  Send nominations and/or questions to Margaret Ellingson, chair of the Rethinking Resource Sharing Innovation Award Committee at margaret.ellingson@emory.edu.
