The Innovation Award comes with a $500 stipend and honors individuals and/or institutions for improving access to information through resource sharing in their library, consortium, state and/or country. The purpose of the award is to showcase innovation in resource sharing and to encourage other librarians and libraries to make changes in their resource sharing operations to improve information delivery to library users.  This year’s award winners, who will split the stipend amount, were recognized for their innovative contributions to resource sharing at the American Library Association’s 2018 Annual Conference in New Orleans.
