Distinguished Service

The CARL Award for Distinguished Service to Research Librarianship is awarded annually to an individual at a CARL member institution who has made a substantial local, national or international contribution to research librarianship. The person may have planned and implemented an exemplary library program, actively promoted research libraries and/or librarianship or otherwise served the profession with marked distinction.

The award is normally conferred at the CARL Spring Meeting (usually in May).  Nominations are welcome from the research library community and should be submitted via info@carl-abrc.ca.

The Award has a $1,000 cash value 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.
