The University Libraries will be awarded “Best of Show” for library publicity materials at the upcoming American Library Association Annual Conference. Nearly 250 entries from over 90 libraries were submitted in the “Best of Show” competition held by the American Library Association’s Public Relations and Marketing Section. Entries were appraised by a jury of three marketing professionals on the quality of content, format, design, creativity, and originality.

“Best of Show” went to our Fall 2012 Event Listing (see the recent edition), a single brochure produced each fall and spring listing all public programs, exhibitions, and special events hosted by the Libraries. More than 1,000 copies of the Event Listing are printed each semester and distributed in all UA library locations, across campus, in local businesses, and mailed to supporters of the library.

“Honorable Mention” went to our Friends of the University Libraries’ (FOL) membership brochure. Redesigned in 2012, the brochure highlights the impact FOL membership makes in student learning and research opportunities at the University of Arizona.
