Nominations sought for prestigious Kilgour Research Award
The Library and Information Technology Association (LITA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), and OCLC, Inc. invite nominations for the 2015 Frederick G. Kilgour Award for Research in Library and Information Technology. The deadline for nominations is Dec. 31, 2015.
The Kilgour Research Award recognizes research relevant to the development of information technologies, in particular research showing promise of having a positive and substantive impact on any aspect of the publication, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information or how information and data are manipulated and managed. The award consists of $2,000 cash, an award citation and an expense-paid trip (airfare and two nights lodging) to the ALA Annual Conference.
Nominations will be accepted from any member of the American Library Association. Nominating letters must address how the research is relevant to libraries; is creative in its design or methodology; builds on existing research or enhances potential for future exploration and/or solves an important current problem in the delivery of information resources. A curriculum vita and a copy of several seminal publications by the nominee must be included. Preference will be given to completed research over work in progress. More information and a list of previous winners can be found on the LITA website<http://www.ala.org/lita/awards/kilgour> at www.ala.org/lita/awards/kilgour<http://www.ala.org/lita/awards/kilgour>.
