As part of its ongoing support of the propagation of library-based diversity research, the ALA Office for Diversity is seeking nominations for the 2014 Achievement in Library Diversity Research.
The Achievement in Library Diversity Research recognizes ALA members for their contributions to the profession through research on diversity issues within library and information science.
Nominations may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include the name of the individual nominated, contact information for that person and a short description of their diversity research accomplishments. Self-nominations are accepted.

The selected individual will be honored by the ALA Council Committee on Diversity, the Diversity Research Grants Advisory Committee and the ALA Office for Diversity at the Diversity Research Grants Update during the 2015 Midwinter Meeting.
Nominations will be accepted through Oct. 15, 2014. For more information about Achievement in Library Diversity Research recognition, including a list of past recipients, please visit http://www.ala.org/advocacy/diversity/diversityresearchstatistics/diversityresearch.
