Award opportunity for library and information researchers

Do you help to deliver a library or information service and have recently carried out research? Perhaps it was in the field of information literacy? If so, you might be interested in applying for a new Library and Information Science Practitioner Researcher Excellence Award that has recently been launched by CILIP’s Library and Information Research Group.

The LIS Practitioner Researcher Excellence Award is worth £500 and will be presented in October 2016 at a New Professionals Day event, either to an individual or a team that has made a substantial contribution to LIS research in 2015-16. In this context, “practitioner researcher” means anyone who works to deliver a library or information service.

The deadline for entries is Monday 5th September 2016.

Please send nominations to Dr Alison Brettle at Members of the LIRG Committee will judge the award.

More information on the award is available on the group’s CILIP webpages.
