ACRL Oregon 2012 Award for Excellence Winners Announced!

The Oregon Chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries is happy to announce its 2012 Awards for Excellence, recognizing two outstanding library projects from Oregon academic librarians:

Terry Reese and the Libraries of Oregon project team.

The Libraries of Oregon project represents a collaborative effort by the State Library and the Oregon State University Libraries & Press.  The project team has created a shared resources that will effectively provide access to statewide research collections and remove barriers to content for all Oregonians, significantly improving our ability to serve under- and unserved populations in Oregon.

Isaac Gilman and the project team behind the Journal for Librarianship and Scholarly Communication (JLSC)

Launched in May, this quarterly, open-access, peer-reviewed journal has already generated nationwide interest.  In addition to providing an outlet for librarians and researchers interested in examining new paradigms for scholarly communication, the journal will serve as a testbed where new forms of peer review and new impact metrics can be modeled and investigated.

What a fantastic year for academic libraries in Oregon – and for all of us across the profession who will benefit from these amazing projects!
