Outstanding Collaboration Citation

This award recognizes and encourages collaborative problem-solving efforts
in the areas of acquisition, access, management, preservation or archiving
of library materials. It recognizes actions, services or products that
improve and benefit the providing and managing of library collections. The
citation may be presented to two or more individuals or groups who have
participated jointly in an appropriate achievement. Accomplishments that
expose problems may be as valuable as successes. The citation will be
presented in a year when an achievement of merit has occurred. Recognized
forms of collaboration must be between library personnel and other
individuals or such groups as publishers, vendors, cultural organizations,
government agencies, philanthropic organizations and the like. Results of a
collaborative effort must demonstrate advancement in collection management
or technical services working environments.

Send nominations, along with written justification for the citation in terms
of demonstrated outcomes in work achieved through actions, services or
products; how the achievement contributed to the fulfillment of needs in the
work of collection management or technical services and any other factors
relevant to the merit of the achievement and two letters of recommendation
to: Sarah
20Award>, chair, Citation Jury.
