Distinguished Librarian Award

This annual award recognizes a librarian whose contributions advance the mission of the Libraries and the University in the areas of teaching, learning, research, and innovative approaches to practice.

Librarians at UW Seattle, Bothell/Cascadia, Tacoma, and the M.G. Gallagher Law Library are eligible.


NOTE: Due to COVID-19 and the extensive shift in priorities and workflows this year, the Libraries will not be soliciting new nominees for the 2021 Award. The selection committee will instead carry forward the very robust 2020 nomination pool and select the awardee from the extant pool.

Nominations are typically accepted in the fall. The award is announced in the spring and the recipient is honored at the annual University Recognition Reception in June.

Questions concerning the Award and award process should be sent to the Selection Committee chair, Hyokyoung Yi, Korean Studies Librarian / Head, East Asia Library Public Services.
