There’s just a few weeks left to nominate individuals or groups for the
Melvil Dewey Medal award! See below for more details.


*Have you or do you know of an individual or group who has made an
professional achievement in library management, training, cataloging and
classification, or the tools and techniques of librarianship?*

The Melvil Dewey Medal is an annual award consisting of $2,000, a Dewey
Medal, and a 24k gold-framed citation to an individual or group for recent
creative leadership of high order, particularly in those fields in which
Melvil Dewey was actively interested: library management, library training,
cataloging and classification, and the tools and techniques of
librarianship. The 2015 award winner was Hwa-Wei Lee, former chief of the
Asian Division of the Library of Congress.

to be submitted to ALA by December 1, 2015.  For additional information,
