April 30, 2012 Leave a comment
Hurry! Nominations close today (Monday 30th April) for the Practitioner Researcher Excellence Award.
We’d like to hear about (a) individual librarians or information scientists, or (b) a team of librarians and/or information scientists, who have made a substantial contribution to LIS research since 2009. Nominated individuals and teams should be based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland. The award winner(s) will receive £500 and a plaque to be presented by Dr Ben Goldacre at the DREaM conference at the British Library on Monday 9th July.
Nominations should take the form of a 500-word statement (maximum) that demonstrates the research excellence of the candidate (or candidate team) and refers to evidence of their research output as practitioner researchers (e.g. published articles, blogs, conference papers, presentations on SlideShare) since 2009. (The award is for an information professional – or team of information professionals – who deliver library and information services. Academics and consultants are not eligible for the award. Self-nomination is not permitted.)
Nominations should be sent to email@example.com. Members of the LIS Research Coalition Board of Directors will form the judging panel for the award.
