Library Journal / ALISE Excellence in Teaching Award

Library Journal / ALISE Excellence in Teaching Award

The Library Journal (LJ) / ALISE Excellence in Teaching Award, sponsored by Rowman & Littlefield, recognizes excellence in educating the next generation of library and information professionals. This annual award, merges the two teaching awards previously presented by ALISE and LJ, and honors the winning LIS educator with a complimentary annual ALISE membership and registration to the ALISE annual conference, a celebration at the ALISE annual conference, an article in LJ in the November 15 issue, and a $3,000 prize.

This partnership between Library Journal and ALISE affirms our commitment to the importance of innovation and critical student-centered thinking in the education of the next generation of library and information professionals.  The first award was presented in 2015 at the ALISE Centennial Conference, and replaces the ALISE Award for Teaching Excellence in the Field of Library and Information Science Education (1993-2014).
