Awarded by Tenn-Share, a Tennessee library consortium, the award is presented annually to any person, institution or organization in Tennessee that has done outstanding work in promoting resource sharing within and among Tennessee Libraries and other information agencies. The recipient will be recognized based on efforts to make available shared library and/or information resources that benefit the organizations involved and the patrons they serve, and that would not be available to them without cooperative efforts.

The award recognizes Pozzebon’s leadership in consortial electronic resources management at the state level through service as chair of the Tennessee Library Associations’ Electronic Resources Management Roundtable and as co-chair of Tenn-Share’s Electronic Resources Committee. Her visionary and proactive guidance has contributed to new methodologies of consortial purchasing and increased cost savings across the state.
