Applicants may have no more than eight years of experience in an academic library position with the main focus on business. Nominees must submit evidence of exemplary librarianship, which can include published journal articles, books, conference presentations, excellence in teaching, online tutorials, or innovative services at their institution.

Award for Outstanding Achievement in Business Librarianship
This award recognizes a Division member, with a gift of $1,000, who has made an outstanding contribution to the field of business and finance librarianship and information science. It is intended to honor an individual for a specific achievement made within a discreet period of time rather than focusing on an individual's full career. Awarded annually to a member of the Business and Finance Division, the achievement may encompass any area of professional endeavor including, but not limited to, exemplary management, innovative product or service development, research, creative applications of technology, teaching, publishing, leadership in the field, and the dissemination of knowledge to users. The B&F Award for Outstanding Achievement originated in 1984. During 1984-1986, the focus was on outstanding achievements in the use of technology. This award is generously sponsored by Global Financial Data.
