IL practitioner of the year

I am sorry that I omitted to report on the Information Literacy practitioner of the year award, presented to its first recipient at the LILAC conference dinner on the 18th March. The winner was Nigel Morgan, Biosciences Subject Librarian in Information Services. This UK-wide competition recognizes outstanding achievements in innovation within the area of Information Literacy. He was picked from a short list of 16 nominees from all kinds of libraries around the country, and was presented the award by Professor Sheila Corrall on behalf of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP). In particular his development of the "Cephalonoan method" at induction was cited. His university has a short article about him winning the award at
An article about the method is: Morgan, N. and Davies, L. (2004) "Innovative library induction – introducing the ‘Cephalonian Method’" SCONUL Focus, (32), 4-8.
