CRL 2013 Primary Source Awards

The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) has announced the call for the CRL 2013 Primary Source Awards. This is a wonderful program to:

recognize research and  teaching faculty, librarians and library staff, students, and others within the CRL community for their innovative use or promotion of primary source  materials in three ways:

  • Access
  • Research
  • Teaching

Nominations are due by January 31, 2013, submitted through the CRL site. In addition to international recognition for innovative use or promotion of primary source materials, both awardees and nominators get an actual prize (each gets to choose a gift certificate for books for an iPad). Even aside from the prize with monetary value, this is a wonderful program that supports CRL’s overall work to promote access to and use of primary source materials.
