It’s almost May so that can only mean one thing – the CILIP Cymru Wales 2015 conference is nearly here! The event is still open for bookings but I mainly want to highlight the third Welsh Librarian of the Year award 2015.
Organised by CILIP Cymru Wales the Welsh Librarian of the Year Award “recognises and celebrates the contribution of librarians and information professionals to the profession and society”. Nominations have been extended to 5th May so you have exactly one week from the time of writing to nominate someone! There are separate categories for nomination:
- Public (local authority, government, health)
- Academic and research (FE, HE, research, National Library)
- Schools and youth
- Other (including commercial and charity)
Nominations must demonstrate achievements in: positive impact on community or sector; use of innovation; benefit to the profession and must be a member of CILIP. The nomination form is available on the CILIP Cymru Wales website.
The Award is administered by the CILIP Cymru Wales and is sponsored by SirsiDynix.
