Larry P. Alford wins 2018 <http://www.ala.org/news/member-news/2018/03/larry-p-alford-wins-2018-hugh-c-atkinson-memorial-award> 
Hugh C. Atkinson Memorial Award

Larry P. Alford, chief librarian at the University of Toronto, has been named the 2018 winner of the Hugh C. Atkinson Memorial Award. Alford will receive a cash award and citation during the ACRL President’s Program on Saturday, June 23, 2018, at the ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans.

Named in honor of one of the pioneers of library automation, the Atkinson Award recognizes an academic librarian who has made significant contributions in the area of library automation or management and has made notable improvements in library services or research.

“The committee selected Larry P. Alford because of his distinguished career as an academic librarian, including his outstanding experience in library automation and library management, as well as his demonstrated risk taking in redesigning library spaces and securing funding for renovations,” said Theresa S. Byrd, Hugh C. Atkinson Memorial Award committee chair and dean of the Copley Library at the University of San Diego. “As chair of the OCLC Board, Larry focused on technology, and he is currently involved with linked data, digital preservation, entrepreneurship, and research data management projects.”

“Additionally, throughout his library career, Larry has increased money for collections and championed public service initiatives,” continued Byrd. “He believes in nurturing new library professionals and has served as a mentor in both the Northern Exposure to Leadership Initiative and the Senior Fellow Program at UCLA. Larry’s colleagues in both Canada and the United States spoke of his collaborative spirit within the libraries he worked and with external library partners. He has numerous publications, presentations, and extensive professional and university service. Larry, an innovator and visionary, epitomizes what Hugh C. Atkinson represented to our profession.”

Alford received his B.A. and M.S.L.S. from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

The Hugh C. Atkinson Award is jointly sponsored by four divisions of the American Library Association: the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS), the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) and the Library and Information Technology Association (LITA). The award is funded from an endowment established to honor Hugh C. Atkinson.
