The Women & Gender Studies Section awards are given annually to honor distinguished
academic librarians who have made outstanding contributions to women & gender studies
through accomplishments and service to the profession. The awards recognize
those who have made long-standing contributions to the field during a career
(the Career Achievement award) and those who have made significant one-time
contributions (the Significant Achievement award).
The award winners will receive a plaque. There is, unfortunately, no cash award at this time. The Women & Gender Studies Section is currently seeking new sponsors for these awards. The awards are presented at the ALA Annual Conference.
