We are pleased to announce that following a break during 2016 the Sally Hernando Innovation Awards are back. We want to hear about the new and innovative ideas Library and Knowledge services have been introducing over the past few years. We know there are lots of them.
You will notice a change in the process for 2017 including an increased emphasis on evaluation. Ideas are great, but we want to know about what happened when you put them into practice. Learning from your experiences helps other services to identify which innovations may work for them, and helps them to avoid pitfalls that you may already have overcome.
We plan to announce the results of the 2017 awards to coincide with Libraries Week in October and there will be funding for the winners to present their innovations at HLG or a similar UK conference.
The new innovations form, guidance, and submission process can be found on the Knowledge for Healthcare Blog
The deadline for entries for the 2017 awards is Friday 12th May
So don’t delay –submit today!
