Hi everyone! This is a friendly reminder that the Beacon Award Nominations are due on February 10!!! So, if you know of someone who meets the criteria (see below), then send me the nomination!!! Thanks in advance and to those of you who have already nominated someone!!! Here's my original post:
On behalf of the Beacon Award committee, I am happy to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the IUG 2017 Beacon Award!
The IUG Beacon Award was created to honor exceptional service to the Innovative Users Community through presentations, collaboration, selfless
dedication to libraries as a whole, and sage advice to others via the IUG List and now Forum. The IUG Beacon Award acknowledges great community members - people who help others attain greatness and share the knowledge gained in the process.
Nominations should be sent to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) as the Chair of the Beacon Award Committee and should include the following:
- Nominee Name
- Nominee's Library
- Nomination statement (100 words or less) highlighting the nominee’s contribution to the IUG community through conferences, meetings, services and assistance via the IUG list and why this person is worthy of the award.
The deadline for nominations is: February 10, 2017
