Established in 1985, the Margaret E. Monroe Award is $1,250* sponsored by NoveList and a citation presented to a librarian who has made significant contributions to library adult services. The individual may be practicing librarian, a library and information science researcher or educator, or a retired librarian who has brought distinction to the profession’s understanding and practice or services for adults.
The criteria for “significant contributions” will be judged by such factors as publications, leadership, measurable effectiveness of programs, influence on others, and creative and innovative concepts.
