Announcing the 2017 ARLIS/NA Research Awards!

The ARLIS/NA Research Awards Sub-Committee is excited to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Research Awards. These three awards recognize the professional, scholarly pursuits of ARLIS/NA members.

H.W. Wilson Foundation Research Award

The H.W. Wilson Foundation Research Award provides funds, up to $3,000, to be used in support of future and in-process research projects that contribute to and benefit the art librarianship and visual resources profession, and librarianship in general.

Worldwide Books Award for Publications

Worldwide Books Award for Electronic Resources
The Worldwide Books Award for Publications and the Worldwide Books Award for Electronic Resources bestow cash prizes – up to $2,000 each – for outstanding print and online art publications that have been published within the past two years, 2015 or 2016. These publications may be in the form of a book, a website, an article, etc.

So whether you need funding to support your research endeavors or you have completed a print or an online publication that you are proud of, the Research Awards Sub-Committee would be delighted to recognize your scholarly contributions to our profession! Please consider self-nominating or nominate the work of an ARLIS/NA colleague that you feel deserves recognition.

Applications for the three awards will all be due on or before Thursday, December 15, 2016.

Award guidelines and application forms are available on the ARLIS/NA Awards Committee webpage and are accessible via the links provided above. Past H.W. Wilson and Worldwide award winners are listed from here as well.

If you have any questions regarding the award applications and/or the eligibility of a project, please contact the chair of the Research Awards Sub-Committee, Laurel Bliss (lbliss@mail.sdsu.edu).

Sincerely,

The ARLIS/NA Research Awards Sub-Committee
