The Library Board of Western Australia Award for Excellence and its accompanying prize of $5,000 was announced by Professor Matthew Allen, Chairman of the Library Board of Western Australia, at a function that conferred two new Fellows of the Library Board, Patricia Gallaher OAM and Dr Lynn Allen, Thursday 17th of March.
“This Award is linked to the Board’s leadership role in guiding and encouraging the provision of all library services throughout the State,” said Professor Allen.
The Award recognises excellent achievement in library services by any person, library or organisation in Western Australia. It will be awarded for a particular service, event, program, piece of research or partnership rather than long and meritorious service.
Nominations will open shortly with the winner announced in Library and Information Week (23-29 May 2011).
Details about the Award including the selection criteria and entry form is available on the State Library website.
