JOSEPH F. SHUBERT LIBRARY EXCELLENCE AWARD APPLICATIONS DUE August 15, 2015

Jacquelyn Thresher, Chair of the New York State Regents Advisory Council on Libraries, announced today that applications are being accepted for the Joseph F. Shubert Library Excellence Award and will be due on August 15, 2015.  The 2015 Award Committee members are Steve Manning, Claudia Depkin, and Ann Thornton.

The Award will recognize a New York State library or library consortium that has taken significant steps to improve the quality of library service to its users.  As in past years, an award of $1,000 will be given to the winner along with a plaque at the annual New York Library Association conference in the Fall.

Projects nominated for the Award should document measurable progress in identifying user needs, taking steps to meet those needs, and evaluating the results.  All types of libraries are eligible to apply (academic, public, school and special).  Previous applicants are encouraged to apply, and previous winners of the Award may apply after 3 years.

For more information about the Shubert Award and an application form, please contact Paula Paolucci in the State Librarian's Office at (518) 474-5930 or via e-mail: Paula.Paolucci@nysed.gov

Applications must be received by August 15, 2015.
