E. H. Little Library – ACRL 2021 Excellence in Academic Libraries Award
The Office of Grants and Contracts congratulates Leland M. Park Director of the Davidson College Library, Lisa Forrest, and the E. H. Little Library staff on an Association of College & Research Libraries 2021 Excellence in Academic Libraries Award.
The competitive national award recognizes outstanding library programs annually, at the community college, college, and university level.
In selecting Davidson, the award committee commended the Library in leading the transition to online instruction at the outset of the COVID-19 response; and noted a strong commitment “that all library work contributes to social justice, providing a model for others to follow in engaging meaningfully with this work at the campus level.”
In addition to this award, Library Archives and Digital Learning have been instrumental in partnering with students and faculty on curricular and co-curricular projects funded by Justice, Equality and Community (JEC); and Stories Yet to be Told (SYTBT): Race Racism and Accountability on Campus college initiatives.

We commend the Library on this extraordinary accomplishment and thank them for their continued partnership.
