On January 24, 2003, Donald G. Davis, Jr. was awarded a lifetime achievement award from the Library History Round Table of the American Library Association for being "a model of judicious and diligent scholarship, for service to the ALA Library History Round Table through editorship of Libraries & Culture for the past quarter century." The Round Table also expressed its sincere appreciation to Davis for editorship of Libraries & Culture:  A Journal of Library History and its predecessor, The Journal of Library History, Philosophy & Comparative Librarianship.

According to the award text, under his leadership, the
Libraries & Culture "book review sections and special issues became rich with international perspective.  Library history seminar proceedings became excellent examples of cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural research. For this and his many other achievements, Davis deserves the abiding respect of a grateful Round Table."
