Steve Bosch has received the 2019 Ross Atkinson Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library Association (ALA). The award honors the memory of Ross Atkinson, a distinguished library leader, author and scholar whose extraordinary service to ALCTS and the library community at-large serves as a model for those in the field.

Steve, who is a member of our Content & Collections Department, has worked at the University of Arizona Libraries for 35 years and has served as the Materials, Budget, Procurement, and Licensing Librarian since 2001. He is a strong advocate for cooperative collection efforts and a pioneer of evidence-based collection decisions, particularly for demand-driven monographs. Learn more about Steve's career accomplishments.

He will be honored during the ALCTS Awards Ceremony on June 22, during the ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition in Washington, D.C. Congratulations Steve!
