Distinguished Alumni Award Guidelines

 SILS Alumni Association

Distinguished alumni award guidelines

  • An alumnus may be considered for recognition for outstanding professional library or information science achievements at national, state or local levels.
  • An alumnus who has demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and given outstanding service to the UNC School of Information and Library Science, or its Alumni Association, and has shown commitment to librarianship or information science, may also be considered for recognition by the Association.
  • Number of years in the profession shall not alone determine a candidates qualification; in giving the award, the association will balance between giving the award for professional promise and giving it primarily as an award for longevity of service at the time of retirement.

To nominate someone who meets these guidelines, please contact the SILS-AA president.
