Following some excellent entries to the Sally Hernando Innovation Awards last year, we are pleased to invite entries for the 2018 awards. Once again, we want to hear about the new and innovative ideas Library and Knowledge services have been introducing over the past few years.
Feedback to several services last year was that their innovations were so new that there had been no time to undertake an evaluation – an essential element of the new process. We would especially welcome re-submission of any of these projects where evaluation has now taken place.
The innovation form has been slightly revised this year to include a champion or witness statement from colleagues within your organisation who have worked with you on the innovations. Please make sure that you use the latest version of the entry form on the blog.
Maria Grant has kindly agreed to select the winners of the award again this year. We hope to announce the results of the 2018 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 2018 awards is Friday 9th March 2018
We look forward to hearing from you.
