Nominees for the award will be evaluated in terms of their demonstrated achievements contributing to one or more of the following CAUL goals:
- Communication & Influence
- Contribution to Learning and Teaching
- Contribution to Research
- Information Resources & Scholarly Communication
- Delivering Quality and Value
Qualifying achievements must be demonstrated to have been influential beyond the nominee’s employing institution over a period of at least two years. Achievements solely at an institutional level are not eligible for consideration. The nature and quality of achievement must be of a level that is far and above the normal requirements of the individual’s paid position, justifying special recognition. Nominees are expected to have displayed exceptional leadership and initiative, have undertaken advocacy at a high level and be able to demonstrate that their achievements have led to change.
See further information and selection criteria for the award.
Individuals other than the University Librarian or equivalent employed at CAUL member libraries during the twelve months prior to the close of nominations. The Award primarily recognises personal achievement but more than one individual may be included in the nomination provided that the contribution of each and every nominee meets the criteria. Previous recipients are eligible for nomination, provided that the nomination is distinct from previous nominations and a period of at least five years has elapsed since the previous Award.
