Do you know anyone in the cataloguing and indexing community who has made an outstanding contribution to the profession?
The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) opens nominations on 1 June for Honorary Fellowship, CILIP’s highest level of recognition for those with an outstanding contribution to the library and information world.
Honorary Fellows are nominated by CILIP members, and can be members of CILIP or others from outside the information profession who have supported its development and profile. The criteria asks for people whose work or activity has raised the profile of the information profession, has significant and positive impact on the profession or has made a difference to the world of libraries, information and knowledge. It may also be awarded as a reflection of the respect and regard of colleagues for a particularly important contribution over a long period.
CILIP Vice President and Honorary Fellow Jan Parry said: “After spending my professional career working in various roles in Government I was touched to be nominated for an Honorary Fellowship following my work for the Hillsborough Independent Panel. I was delighted to accept the Fellowship and felt honoured and privileged that my work had been recognised in this way.
CILIP Chief Executive Annie Mauger said: “Honorary Fellowship is the highest recognition that CILIP can give to a person who has made an outstanding contribution to the library and information world. It is also the means by which CILIP can recognise those people who are not in the information profession but have supported and contributed to its development and profile”.
The nomination period runs from 1 June to 11 July 2014 and the awards will be announced at CILIP’s AGM on 20 September in Bristol.
