Our Awards

Award Categories

Welcome to the home of Purdue Libraries and School of Information Studies’ awards and named professorships.

The awards listed here were made possible by the generous support of friends and donors who support our mission of providing the highest quality data and information literacy education to students, while ensuring that all members of the Purdue community have access to the scholarly information resources necessary to further their education, research, and careers.

We invite you to explore our awards and the inspiring stories behind them, to learn more about our exceptional donors and recipients, and to find information on how to apply.
