CRL Invites Nominations for Primary Source Awards

Thursday, September 17, 2009
Don Dyer -

CRL initiated its Primary Source Awards program in the fall of 2009. Primary Source Awards will recognize the contributions of research and teaching faculty, librarians and library staff, graduate students, and others within the CRL community for their creative use of primary source materials in three arenas: research, teaching, and access. The awards will enable staff at CRL libraries to share creative strategies for the usage of materials in CRL’s major collecting areas: newspapers, archives, government documents, and journals.

Awardees will receive a gift certificate for Powell’s Books. Awardees will be announced on March 1, 2010, and recognized at CRL’s Council of Voting Members Annual Meeting and other appropriate events, and publicized through CRL media.

Nominators of the eventual awardees will receive an iPod touch. Online nominations can be submitted by research and teaching faculty, library staff, graduate students, and administrators within the CRL community and must be received by January 31, 2010.
