Deadline: This year's deadline has been extended until February 28.

Core and OCLC welcome submissions for the Frederick G. Kilgour Award to bring attention to research relevant to the development of information technologies, especially work which shows promise of having a positive and substantive impact on any aspect of the publication, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information, or the processes by which information and data is manipulated and managed. The intent is to recognize a body of work probably spanning years, if not the majority of a career.

The winner receives $2,000 cash and an expense paid trip to the ALA Annual Conference (airfare and two nights lodging).

Please visit the Kilgour Award page for award and submission details.

Review ALA’s personal data notification (PDN) before proceeding.
