Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS).

The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) named Stephen Bosch (materials, budget, procurement, and licensing librarian at the University of Arizona) as the 2019 recipient of the Ross Atkinson Lifetime Achievement Award. It is sponsored by EBSCO Information Services and consists of a citation and monetary award. Bosch began his career at the University of Arizona as acquisitions librarian and coordinator for collection development in the humanities, became head of the acquisitions and collection development department, then served as information access librarian and finance and administrative services librarian. He has been a member of ALCTS committees and groups and has chaired the ALCTS Acquisitions Section and the Chief Collection Development Officers of Large Academic Libraries Discussion Group. In addition, Bosch has participated in Association of Research Libraries and NISO task forces. He won the Harrassowitz Leadership in Library Acquisitions Award in 2006.

In a separate press release, ALCTS named Casey Mullin, head of cataloging and metadata services at Western Washington University, as the recipient of the 2019 Esther J. Piercy Award. Prior to assuming his current position, Mullin served as head of the Data Control Unit at Stanford University followed by music cataloger at the New York Public Library. He has developed metadata standards and vocabularies and was recently elected to serve a 3-year term on the Library of Congress' Program for Cooperative Cataloging Policy Committee.

ALCTS' Collection Management Section (CMS) gave Maria Savova the 2019 ProQuest Coutts Award for Innovation. She is director of collections and technical services at The Claremont Colleges Library. The award recognizes significant and innovative contributions to electronic collections management and development practice. The recipient receives $2,000 donated by ProQuest and a citation. Savova began developing a faceted acquisitions budget structure in 2012 at The Claremont Colleges Library. It demonstrates a way to keep pace with a number of resources and new ways that libraries acquire them. She created a multidimensional model to replace the 2D model for budget restructuring, and it can be tailored to support any academic library. This faceted model supports planning, monitoring, communication, and advocacy.
