You only have a few more days to submit your nomination for the 2011 Salem Press Library Blog Awards - nominations close May 13th.
Last year's inaugural awards went to some very deserving blogs, so be sure to support your favorite - new and old - again this year.
Read about the judges and full details on Salem Press' website, but here's a bit about awards, nominations, and judging process:
Please share your favorite blogs with us. Doing so will enter your beloved online reading in our 2011 Awards process. We'll be accepting suggestions through May 13, 2011. To send us nominations (including a working link to the blog), email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bigger & Better
This year, Library Blog Awards returns with the same goal—to recognize blogging excellence across the library spectrum—but with a new structure. We have increased the number of volunteer judges (from four to 15) and blog categories (from five to eight) and added a new dimension to the process: the public vote.
After our judges complete the first round of eliminations and finalists are announced on May 18th, we will ask readers and interested parties to cast their votes online. The list of winners (one per category) will follow in mid-June.
Last year I was awarded gold star recognition, which is great. But what I like most about these awards is how they work as a discovery tool in finding new bloggers and resources.
If you are so inclined, send in your nomination before May 13th.
Update 5/17/11: Public voting is now open until June 1st - cast your vote for your favorite blogs (and thanks everyone for nominating me for Public Library blog!)
