On May 8, 2008, the Ontario Council of University Libraries established an award to recognize the outstanding contribution of an individual or team of individuals within the OCUL consortium. Recipients of the award, which may be given annually, will be exemplary contributors to the OCUL vision. The award will recognize those that have enhanced service either across OCUL libraries generally, or within a particular sector of OCUL libraries.
We encourage your participation in the nomination process and invite you to join us in celebrating the contributions made by your colleagues. The nomination deadline is Friday, February 19, 2010 at 5:00 PM EDT.
