Inspiration doesn’t come along everyday. Finding someone or something that inspires you is rare and should probably be rewarded. For example:

  • Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized for outstanding service?
  • Do you know someone who has gone the extra mile to provide outreach services to underserved communities?

ALSC is reminding members to apply for professional awards this fall. Applications are open and several deadlines are approaching. Below is list of ALSC professional awards which are available for submission or nomination. For more information, please visit: http://www.ala.org/alsc/awardsgrants/profawards
