Stanford Prize for Innovation in Research Libraries (SPIRL)

Stanford University Libraries offers a prize to recognize and celebrate innovation through programs, projects, and/or new or improved services that directly or indirectly benefit readers and users.  The goals of the prize are to single out for community attention and to celebrate functionally significant results of the innovative impulses in research libraries worldwide. The process of consideration for making awards is sponsored by the Stanford University Libraries (SUL).  There will be a modest prize purse, with the principal emphasis of SPIRL on identifying and applauding distinguished peers in fostering better services to the research world.

 Nominations are welcome for research, national, or other libraries that support research activities.
