Submit a Nomination for the Prestigious Kilgour Technology Research Award
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 winner receives $2,000 cash, an award citation, and an expense-paid trip (airfare and two nights lodging) to the 2018 ALA Annual Conference. Submit your nomination today.

Apply for the LITA/Library Hi Tech Award for Cutting Edge Tech Education
The award, given to either a living individual or an institution, may recognize a single seminal work or a body of work created during or continuing into the five years immediately preceding the award year. The body of work need not be limited to published texts but can include course plans or actual courses and/or non-print publications such as visual media. Awards are intended to recognize living persons rather than to honor the deceased; therefore, awards are not made posthumously. The award includes a citation of merit and a $1,000 stipend. Submit your nomination today.
