The Academic Library Division of the Georgia Library Association/Georgia Chapter of ACRL invites Georgia librarians and library science students to submit research papers pertaining to academic libraries for presentation at the 2020 Georgia Libraries Conference (GLC). Criteria for selection include purpose, content, organization, scholarship and references. Papers should include research on developments in academic libraries that present challenging opportunities for libraries and librarianship throughout the state, region or nation. Papers should be approximately 2000 – 6000 words.
The Georgia Library Quarterly (GLQ) may invite selected authors to submit their papers for possible publication in GLQ.
GLA may award complimentary GLC conference registration and a cash prize for the paper selected as the top entry. Complimentary conference registration may also be awarded to the runner-up entry. The two top papers will be presented at the Georgia Libraries Conference in Macon, Georgia. If no papers are submitted or papers are not deemed scholarly, then ALD reserves the right to not present any awards for the year.
