The LIRT (Library Instruction Roundtable) Awards recognize a librarian or library program that has made a significant contribution to the fields of library instruction or information literacy. This is a great opportunity to highlight the outstanding librarians and innovative programs here in Michigan at the national level, so considering nominating a colleague (or yourself!).
Each year, LIRT awards two prizes: the LIRT Innovation in Instruction Award for an outstanding library program and the LIRT Librarian Recognition Award to an individual librarian. Awardees will receive $1000 cash, a plaque, and a $500 stipend to attend ALA Annual.
More information, rubrics, and nomination checklists are available on the LIRT Awards website
