YALSA Nonfiction: Nominations

Next in the YALSA Nonfiction Policies & Procedures:  Nominations

From the website: “Committee members suggest titles beginning in November after their election or appointment, with suggestions due each month through the end of the time period. Committee members are responsible for nominating titles throughout the process. Following this procedure allows committee members to reflect on what their peers consider to be award-worthy titles and narrows the list, leading to more efficient and productive meetings. Each suggestion must be in writing on an official online suggestion form. Each suggestion must include the following information: author, title, publisher, price, ISBN and publication date.”

Reading, discussions, nominations are continually being made. Even for committee members, the official form has to be used and has to include the pertinent details about the book.

Next week: Field suggestions!
