The Association of College and Research Libraries has selected Milne Instruction Librarians Kimberly Davies Hoffman and Michelle Costello to receive its 2011 Instruction Section (IS) Innovation award for their work in developing the Library Instruction Leadership Academy (LILAC). The award is given each year in recognition of a project demonstrating “creative, innovative or unique approaches to information literacy instruction or programming.”
The LILAC project, which ran from January through May 2010, was a regional effort that provided intensive training, observational experiences, reflection through writing, and teaching practice to K-12, community and college/university librarians.
Hoffman and Costello will receive a certificate and $3000 prize at the the American Library Association’s annual conference this summer in New Orleans.
