Humphry/OCLC/Forest Press Award for International Librarianship
The American Library Association is accepting nominations for the 2020 John Ames Humphry/OCLC/Forest Press Award. The John Ames Humphry/OCLC/forest press award is a recognition of significant contribution to international librarianship. The award is made to a librarian or other person who has made significant contributions to international librarianship, but primary consideration will be given to contributions in the field of classification and subject analysis, and to work in third world countries. Created on the occasion of the retirement of John Humphry as executive director of forest press, publisher of the Dewey decimal classification, the award recognizes Humphry’s far-ranging work to internationalize the English-language editions of Dewey and to ensure that translations were adapted to meet the needs of other cultures and countries.
