WHCLIST has been an effective force in library advocacy nationally,
statewide and locally since the White House Conferences on Library and
Information Services in 1979 and 1991. WHCLIST has provided its assets to
the ALA Washington Office to transmit its spirit of dedicated, passionate
library support to a new generation of advocates. Both ALA and WHCLIST are
committed to ensuring the American people get the best library services
The criteria for the WHCLIST Award are:
