The ALAO Awards Committee seeks nominations for the 2013 Jay Ladd Distinguished Service Award.
This award recognizes an individual who (1) has been an Academic Library Association of Ohio member for at least 5 years, and (2) who has promoted academic libraries and librarianship not only on his or her own campus, but also within the state.
The award also recognizes someone who has provided leadership in the promotion of ALAO through service such as committee membership, executive board office, or interest group office. The Jay Ladd Distinguished Service Award honors the memory of Jay Ladd, a founding member of ALAO in the early 1970s.
This is a wonderful way to recognize a colleague who has provided leadership in ALAO and in the profession. The recipient of this year’s award will receive an honorary 5-year membership in ALAO and will be recognized at the ALAO Annual Conference at Kent State University Stark Campus on October 25, 2013.
