(via Ramune Kubilius, Northwestern University)

Do you know a rising star in the library and information world?  Would you like to see them recognized for their promising achievements?  Look no further!  ATG Media is thrilled to announce the second annual round of nominations for Up and Comers.

Who exactly is an “Up and Comer”, you ask?  They are librarians, library staff, vendors, publishers, MLIS students, instructors, consultants, and researchers who are new to their field or are in the early years of the profession.  An Up and Comer can be someone you work with, someone you’ve presented with or shaken hands with at a conference, or someone whose accomplishments and potential you admire.  Up and Comers are passionate about the future of libraries.  They innovate, inspire, collaborate, and take risks.  They are future library leaders and change makers.  And they all have one thing in common: they deserve to be celebrated.

The 2018 Up and Comers will be recognized in the December/January issue of Against the Grain and at the First Time Attendees Reception at the Charleston Conference, and 15 of these brilliant rising stars will be profiled in the same issue.  In addition, they will be featured in a series of scheduled podcast interviews that will be posted on the ATGthePodcast.com website.

Nominations for the second round of Up and Comers has been extended through October 12th.  Don’t wait!   Spread the good news, tell your friends and colleagues, and nominate your favorite Up and Comer here.

CARLI Counts is a continuing education library leadership immersion program that prepares librarians to make effective use of research findings on the impact of academic libraries on student success for the twin purposes of service development and library advocacy. Program participants will learn how to use local library data analytics in alignment with institutional data, goals, and strategic priorities to improve their services and demonstrate their value. CARLI Counts deliverables will include a portfolio of local case studies, an evaluation of the collective statewide impact of those cases, and a replicable state/regional training model for equipping librarians to be campus leaders in assessing library impact on student learning and success, all of which will be made openly available on the CARLI website. CARLI will work in partnership with the University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign and Lewis & Clark Community College.

In this cycle, IMLS received 73 preliminary proposals requesting $20,447,280 and invited 23 to submit full proposals, requesting $5,695,653. Of these, IMLS selected 14 projects to receive funding totaling $3,207,711, including CARLI Counts.

“As centers of learning and catalysts of community change, libraries and museums connect people with programs, services, collections, information, and new ideas in the arts, sciences, and humanities. They serve as vital spaces where people can connect with each other,” said IMLS Director Dr. Kathryn K. Matthew. “IMLS is proud to support their work through our grant making as they inform and inspire all in their communities.”
