This year IS Oxford sponsored the CoLRic Innovative Practice Award (CIPA), given to the team that can demonstrate the highest value and impact of their service provision. This year, we were delighted to have our own Emma Duffield, Sales Manager for IS Oxford, on the judging panel.
The nominees all submitted examples of inspiring and creative teamwork and ‘lockdown-centric’ initiatives that reflected the adaptability of the profession in adverse circumstances. Emma was impressed by the standard of the shortlisted candidates and reported ‘It was a pleasure to be involved with both sponsoring and judging this award. The resourcefulness and resilience of the library teams involved was fantastic. Well done to everyone who submitted – you’re all amazing!’
The winner of the 2021 CoLRiC Innovative Practice Award (CIPA) is the Trafford College Group Library Service for ‘LibraryLive – integrating the Library Service into curriculum delivery’. The winners receive a trophy and a certificate and are invited to share their story with the CoLRiC community at the annual CoLRic conference and in their e-newsletter ‘CoLRiC Impact’.
