DARE received the 2013 Dartmouth Medal for outstanding reference work, granted by the Reference and User Services Association of the American Library Association. DARE is held by more than 2,500 libraries, including 70 in Wisconsin and 23 in foreign countries. It is included in the libraries of the Pentagon, Smithsonian Institution, U.S. Senate, U.S. Supreme Court, National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The project is frequently mentioned by language columnists, bringing kudos to UW-Madison. The Fall 2013 issue of the journal American Speech was dedicated to articles about DARE.
