The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) has established ARLIS/NA Applauds, an annual award to honor outstanding achievements by an individual member or group in the preceding calendar year. The inspiration for this award was the extraordinary achievement of the first recipients, Carol Ng-He and Claire Payne, who acted decisively to support the successful recasting of the society’s 2020 annual conference as an entirely virtual event.

ARLIS/NA individual members in good standing, an ARLIS/NA Chapter, or a group of ARLIS/NA members at-large may make nominations. The current awards committee chair and members of this award’s subcommittee are not eligible to submit or receive nominations.

Qualifying contributions include participating in ARLIS/NA special projects, dedicating extraordinary time and energy to committee or advocacy efforts, advancing DEI initiatives, responding effectively or creatively to an unforeseen or urgent need of the society, contributing innovative or creative ideas to the profession, performing extraordinary volunteerism on the society’s or profession’s behalf, and promoting the society’s professional values.

Each award recipient will be recognized at the society’s annual conference convocation and receive a one-year complimentary individual membership to ARLIS/NA as well as a certificate of appreciation signed by the ARLIS/NA President and awards committee chair.
