    BEST LIBRARY TUMBLR: This is a more specific category; I want to see a TUMBLR by a “LIBRARY” (aka, an organizational Tumblr, not a personal one). I’ll give a few awards for this category now that TUMBLR IS THE HOTTEST BLOG PLATFORM.

    BEST LIBRARY-RELATED .GIF BLOG: Sooooo many of these have sprang up since last year’s awards that I’m sure there will be multiple winners here.

    Just like last year, we’ll have lots of swerves and unannounced categories, so STAY TUNED and NOMINATE ALL THE THINGS since you never know what the final categories will be!
