The Library Board of Western Australia is pleased to invite nominations for the second annual Library Board of Western Australia Award for Excellence. Managers in all library sectors are encouraged to nominate innovative people or projects for the 2012 Award.
Entry forms, guidelines and selection criteria are available via the State Library of Western Australia website.
The Award recognises excellence and innovation in the library sector by any person, library or organisation in Western Australia.
The Library Board of Western Australia Award for Excellence is intended to recognise a particular service, event, program, piece of research or partnership completed during the past year, rather than long and meritorious service. The Award recognises a broad spectrum of library related work, and is not restricted to libraries and librarians. For 2012, the achievement must have been completed during the previous year 2011.
“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, Chairman of the Library Board.
Prize money of $5000 will be awarded, with the winner announced during Library and Information Week 2012 (21 – 25 May).
Nominations close at 5.00pm on Friday 30 March 2012.
