OLAC Research Grant

This grant is awarded annually by the OLAC Executive Board to encourage research in the field of audiovisual cataloging. Proposals will be judged by a committee appointed by the Board on the basis of practicability and perceived value to the audiovisual cataloging community. The OLAC Research Grant Committee is usually composed of the OLAC vice president (Chair of the Grant Committee), the previous grant winner, and an additional OLAC member. Research Grant proposals are accepted on a rolling basis. For more information or to submit a proposal, please contact the committee chair or follow the guidelines here.

Nancy B. Olson Award

The annual Nancy B. Olson award (formerly called "OLAC Award") recognizes and honors a librarian who has made significant contributions to the advancement and understanding of audiovisual and/or electronic resources cataloging. An Awards Committee  appointed by the Board selects a recipient based on nominations received, subject to approval by the Executive Board. More details and past winners can be found here.
