About the awards

For over ten years Emerald has supported professionals and researchers in librarianship through the American Library Association (ALA) awards, as part of the company's long-standing commitment to the library community.

These awards highlight the key role librarians play in academic institutions by recognizing their commitment, contribution and development to the field.
Emerald provides a cash prize for three different ALA awards:

  • The Library & Information Technology Association (LITA)/Library Hi-Tech award.
  • The Reference & User Services Association (RUSA) Business Reference & Services Section (BRASS) Emerald Research Grant Award.
  • The Association of College Research Libraries (ACRL) Ilene F. Rockman Instruction Section Publication of the Year Award.

The awards were presented to the winners on Sunday 28th June at the ALA annual conference in San Francisco. We caught up with the winners to find out more about them and their award-winning work, and their advice for people starting out in a career in librarianship.
