$500 Award | Applications due 3/08/2024 | Winners published in Digital Commons
Every complete application is judged anonymously and independently by each member of the Library Prize Committee according to the evaluation criteria (See Evaluation Criteria). Scores are then analyzed, averaged, and ranked to determine an overall winner or winners and any runners-up.
The committee aims to be composed of several librarians and ideally three faculty members representing the broad branches of study consisting in the arts and humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences.
This year's committee was formed in the midst of the global COVID pandemic:
Kate Bengtson, Instructional Technology Specialist
Taylor Desloge, Visiting Assistant Professor of History
Ashley Hanson, Research and Instruction Librarian
Jenifer L. Ishee, Linda Lear Librarian for Special Collections and Archives
Lori Looney, Research, Data, and Collection Support Librarian
Andrew Lopez, Research Support Librarian, Government Documents
Di Luo, Chu-Niblack Assistant Professor of Art History and Architectural Studies
