Distinguished Service

The CARL Award for Distinguished Service to Research Librarianship is awarded annually to a Canadian individual who has served the profession with marked distinction and has made significant national and international contributions to research librarianship through their leadership and engagement.

This award is normally conferred at the CARL Spring Meeting. Nominations are welcome from the research library community and may be directed to the CARL Executive Director at any time. Nominations should include a description of the contributions and their impact and will normally be accompanied by a minimum of two letters of support.

The Award has a cash value of $2,500 sponsored by ProQuest LLC. ProQuest creates specialized information resources and technologies that propel successful research and lifelong learning. A global leader in serving libraries of all types, ProQuest offers the culmination of experience from many respected brands of information resources.

CARL is grateful to ProQuest LLC for its generous support of this award.
